We're waiting for Alan Cox to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service,

1. Was a SSRI (site specific risk information) Report done for this site and if so could I see a copy of this?
2. Was an Integrated Risk Management Plan in place and were stakeholders consulted - could I see a copy of this?

Yours faithfully,

Alan Cox
