Below is the information we would like to obtain from you under the Freedom of Information Act.

 

The data is likely to be found in returns to government using the electronic incident recording system. We understand they are recorded in the IRMP Fire Safety Returns (FS11) as full time equivalent (FTE) figures. The numbers of inspecting/auditing officers are recorded according to their managerial position (from brigade manager to firefighter) and non-uniformed staff are recorded separately.

 

Please provide us with following data in a tabular form (see below), for 31 March each year from 2006 to 2017 (inclusive) and by managerial level, the number of fire and rescue service officers in England who have been dedicated to inspecting and auditing buildings under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order.
