Response

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet

 

We are unable to provide you with the call signs for appliances and
stations as these are exempt under national security

 

It is the considered view of Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue that the
information requested does engage the exemption found at Section 24 of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, which concerns safeguarding national
security.

 

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue believe that such information could be used
by someone with hostile intent to facilitate a criminal or terrorist act
either at a fire station or out in the wider community.  This information
could possibly be used to clone vehicles or interfere with legitimate fire
communications.

 

Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue recognises that individuals with hostile intent
can be highly motivated to go to great lengths to gather intelligence and
in this case there is grounds for withholding what may seem to you like
harmless information on the basis that it may assist such individuals when
pieced together with other information they may obtain.

 

Although this information has previously been disclosed in response to a
Freedom of Information request, Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue are now in
receipt of advice from the Centre for the Protection of National
Infrastructure detailing how they consider information of this nature
could be used to assist a criminal or terrorist attack.

 

As Section 24 is a qualified exemption, Lincolnshire County Council has
considered the public interest test.

 

There is clearly a legitimate public interest in openness and
accountability by public organisations; however it is considered that the
disclosure of this information would add very little in terms of
accountability for public spending and decision making, both of which
would ordinarily add significant weight to the public interest in
disclosure. It is recognised that there is also a legitimate public
interest in the public being satisfied that Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue are
capable of responding appropriately and effectively to incidents where
they are required, however it is considered that this interest is met by
the disclosure of the information in redacted form and the disclosure of
call signs is not necessary to satisfy that interest.

 

There is clearly an inherent public interest in safeguarding national
security. There is also a strong public interest in ensuring that
emergency services are not exposed to any kind of vulnerability that could
prevent them from being able to effectively fulfil their function.

 

On balance, Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue considers that the public interest
in maintaining the exemption does outweigh the public interest in
disclosure and as such will not be providing details of call-signs in
response to your request.

 

Lincolnshire County Council believes that the response outlined above
satisfies your request for information under the Freedom of Information
Act and that all information that can be made available to you has been
provided.

 

You are entitled to an internal review of the administration of your
request. You can request an internal review by contacting
[4][email address]. Should you remain dissatisfied following the
outcome of the review you can submit a formal complaint to the Information
Commissioner's Office. Further information can be obtained from their
website [5]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Once again, thank you for your enquiry.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Emma Wells
