Bariatric Rescues

We're waiting for Rachael Venables to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Cumbria County Council,

1. I'd like to know how many bariatric rescues the fire service was called out to attend, for each financial year, from 2013 to 2018?

Could you divide all information, by financial year?

Also, if possible, could you provide any details that you can to these rescues - (e.g.) the location type, the rescue required, number of crews called or age of person attended to?

2. Can you also provide the amount spent by the fire service on bariatric-related training and equipment, divided by financial year?

If possible, can you again provide details - so models, hoists, lifting equipment etc.?

I wish to be informed in writing whether you have such information and, if so, I seek the disclosure of that information. If the information is covered by any exemptions, please disclose such information as is not covered by the exemptions.

If you are considering charging for the disclosure of this information, please inform me before any work that would be liable to a charge is carried out.

Yours faithfully,

Rachael Venables

Dear Information Governance,

Thanks very much for confirming the receipt of my FOI.

I appreciate that this is rather out of the ordinary, but ahead of the 20-day-deadline I wondered if I could ask for just one figure? That is, just the total number of rescues carried out by the service in 2017-18?

The reason I'm asking, is that we’re hoping to run this on air next Wednesday, so if there is any way that you are able to send that number over in the next few days, I would really appreciate it.

Many thanks for your time.

Yours sincerely,

Rachael Venables
