Secondary employment levels of staff

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to know how many full-time firefighters (all operational crews) your Fire & Rescue Service currently employs and how many of those firefighters are registered as having second jobs outside of their main employment in your Fire & Rescue Service. Would you please include a breakdown of what roles such firefighters are carrying out as second jobs, for example, taxi driver, door supervisor, carer, paramedic and so on?

Yours faithfully,

Mr Acres

Barry, Gerry, Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service

Dear Mr Acres,

 

Thank-you for your request for information which I am dealing with under
the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 

 

Can you please clarify what roles you  consider to be “operational crews”
for example:  Firefighter Watch Commander, Crew Commander, Station
Commander.  Would you wish to include those working in prevention and
protection or just incident response?   

 

If you do not respond within two calendar months this request will be
closed.  Please use reference 41 when you respond.

 

Yours sincerely

Gerry Barry
