Norma Barrow made this Freedom of Information request to Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service,

Can you advise how many drivers you have that are permitted to use Blue Light warning devices fitted to a vehicle while the vehicle is in motion.

Can you advise at what level these Drivers are trained to? (Eg is it an internal award or recognized by an external awarding body) What is the total contact time duration of this course.

Are these courses compliant with Section 19 of the Road Safety Act 2006.

Has there been an impact assessment on the introduction of Section 19 conducted in the last 3 years, if please provide the report.

If section 19 of the Road Safety Act 2006 was to be enacted what, if any, impact would it have on the service.

Yours faithfully,

Norma Barrow
