Dear R Gray

 

I am writing in response to your (below) request for information which was
received by the London Fire Brigade (LFB) Information Access Team on 22
September 2014. Your request was considered under the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and I am pleased to attached
redacted copies of our Mobilising Information System (MobIS) reports as
requested.

 

You will note that some personal data have been redacted in line with the
requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), and by virtue of
s40(2) of the FOIA – personal information^1. Section 40(2) is an absolute
exemption with regards to personal data relating to those who were
rescued, those who made the emergency call, third parties that were called
to assist us in the incidents e.g. names and contact details of local
authority officers, suppliers e.g. electricity, water and gas as well as
the attending  ‘junior’ LFB officers. It is considered that to disclose
this type of information to you in response to your request for
information would breach the first data protection principle which provide
that personal data shall be processed fairly and lawfully.

 

I would also like to draw your attention that the information that has
been provided is as it was held that the time of your request and; as it
is stated on the attached report, “work is in progress to confirm accuracy
and completeness of the content”.

 

I trust this concludes your request. However, if you have any queries,
please contact me.

 

You have the right to ask the Authority to review this response. If you
wish to do so, please set out in writing your reasons for asking and
address them to David Wyatt – Head of Information Management and
Performance at [1][email address] .

 

You also have the right to ask the Information Commissioner for a decision
as to whether the Authority has dealt with your request in accordance with
the requirements of the FOIA. If you wish to do this, you must first ask
the Authority to review its decision; and then you must apply promptly to
the Information Commissioner at: The Information Commissioner's Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Thank you for your interest in the LFB.

 

Kind regards
