Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. 

Please find attached a spreadsheet with the information requested, please note that Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service do not use fleet numbers. The vehicle registrations for some Officer cars have been omitted along with the registration number of any vehicles disposed of. This information is considered third party personal data and is withheld under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, as disclosure would breach the first principle of the Data Protection Act 2018.  Section 40 is an absolute exemption and is therefore not subject to the public interest test.   

I can confirm that we are currently waiting for delivery of 4 vehicles.

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been handled, you can complain or request an internal review of the decision. This must be done within 40 working days of receiving this response. You can do this by writing to the Assistant Chief Fire Officer, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, St. Michael’s Street, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY1 2HJ or email:
