Request detail: 

Dear Sir/Madam,

The purpose of this study is to collect information on flood events and the impacts they cause in order to determine the economic damages of floods.  This will then inform development of a process for collecting flood impact information in the future that will allow the Environment Agency to analyse and summarise flood damages more quickly after a flood occurs.

As part of data collection, we are contacting organisations that may be able to provide information on the impacts of floods that occurred between January 2016 and November 2019

Request detail: 

I am making a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

I would like to know the number of hoax phone calls received by Shropshire Fire Service in 2018

As a result of these hoax calls, how much of Shropshire Fire Service’s time and money is wasted?
