Dear Robert

 

Further to your original request of 8 October 2019, which I have treated
as a Freedom of Information request, please find below our response to the
information that you requested.

 

Query:

 

Please could you provide me with the number of times that each station in
the DWFRS area was called out to emergencies, categorised into the type of
callout in the year of 2018, i.e;

 

Response:

 

Please see attached a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet called “FOI 19 96 Number
of incidents in 2018”, which provides the incident information that you
requested for 2018.

 

There are two columns of information, one which refers to the number of
incidents attended by station and the other the number of appliances that
attended the incidents.

 

I trust this answers your queries, however if you are unhappy with the
service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of the decision, you should write to the
Information Management Team, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service,
Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing Centre, Hulse Road, Salisbury, Wiltshire
SP1 3NR within 40 working days of receipt of the original
decision. Alternatively you can email
[1][DWFRS request email].

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint or review, you
may apply directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for a
decision. Generally the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have
exhausted the complaints procedure at the Fire Authority. The ICO can be
contacted at:
