Gas explosions and fires

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Cumbria County Council,

Please could you tell me, for each of the last five years, the number of a) gas explosions your fire crews have attended and b) fires where a gas appliance was recorded as the cause of the fire?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Nicholas Donovan

Dear Nicholas Donovan 

Environmental Information Regulations 2004 Reference: FOI-9236-2021

Thank you for your request for information regarding Fires, which was
received on 23/05/2021.

The council aims to provide you with the information within the statutory
timescale of 20 working days in this case the date is 21/06/2021.
Subject to the information not being exempt or containing any references
to third parties.

While we endeavour to respond to in these timescales, we want to make you
aware that responding to the current clinical priority of Covid-19 may
mean at times, we struggle to meet these timescales.

The council will, as a matter of routine make information available in
electronic format. Where it is not practical to do this information will
be provided in hard copy (paper). If information is required in
alternative formats e.g. language, audio, large print, etc., please
indicate this as soon as possible so the council can consider your
request.

The Environmental Information Regulations 2004 define a number of
exemptions/exceptions which may prevent information being released to you
automatically. The council will make an assessment about the application
of any exemptions/exceptions and issue you with a decision letter, which
will include details of your right to appeal.

If the information you request contains reference to a third party the
council will consult with them prior to making a decision about the
release of information.

In accordance with the council's Charging Policy a fee may be charged for
supplying information. If a fee is payable you will be issued with a fees
notice. The applicable fee must be paid in full before the information is
processed and released. The statutory time limit for responses is
suspended until the council has received and processed your payment. If
payment is not received within three months of issuing the fees notice
your request will be closed.

If you have any queries or concerns about this email do not hesitate to
contact us.

Many thanks
