We use an internal spreadsheet, rather than any specialist databases or
systems, to manage these types of requests.

 

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:
