Dear Sir,

 

Further to your recent request to North Wales Fire and Rescue Service
(NWFRS) made under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act for the
NWFRS Fleet list, please see the attached spreadsheet.

 

NWFRS can confirm that it holds the information you have requested
regarding call signs; however, this information is exempt under Section 24
 (National Security) of the Act and is, therefore, being withheld.

 

Members of the public will appreciate that as an emergency service, NWFRS
must ensure that certain information relating to details of its appliances
or other sensitive operational intelligence is appropriately protected.
 Releasing information such as call signs may have wider implications that
must be considered, i.e. disclosing certain information may prejudice the
ability of NWFRS to maintain its own and national security. The Service
believes that maintaining security and ensuring public safety in a
national and local context takes precedence over releasing certain
information.

 

NWFRS accepts that this type of information is of interest to members of
the public but believes that it is not in the greater public good to
release call signs and, as a result, NWFRS has decided that the public
interest is better served by not disclosing this information.

 

In taking this decision NWFRS has taken note of the Centre for the
Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) guidance on disclosure of
sensitive information, which states that national security is paramount
and should be considered carefully in any government or commercial
decision to release or disseminate information to the public.

handled, you can request a review by writing to:
