Dear South Wales Fire Service,

I am requesting any information relating to the Military Exercise code named Chameleon, that took place between the 25th-26th February 2016.

Could you please provide me with WHAT information or notifications did the Welsh Fire Services receive from the Military about this exercise?, and what procedures did the Welsh Fire Services do especially for the area of Llantrisant during exercise Chameleon?.

According to the many of the local residents of Llantrisant, an explosion of some intensity was heard and felt during the time of exercise Chameleon and smoke was seen in the area.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Blackler, Natalie,

Could you provide anything at all, did any station make note of people calling into say their was a fire or smoke in the area on the 26th February 2016? in or around the Royal Glamorgan Hospital or Smilog Woods.

Did any office receive a memo or fax about this exercise? because when people rang 101 they were told it was a military exercise that night.

Yours sincerely,

Gary Jones
