Request detail: 

Dear Sir/Madam,

This is a freedom of information request to assess the number of suicides among serving and former firefighters. Firefighter refers to anyone who was, or had previously been an operational frontline firefighter.

Please can you provide the number of your firefighters who have committed suicide each year since 1988, or as far back as the service has records. If the service has merged, please provide data for its constituent services prior to the merger.

For each year, please also state the total headcount of firefighters for that year. The date of the headcount is up to you.

If possible, please provide the information in the table below:
