I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information. Please may you provide me with:
Statistics on the number of fires your fire service has attended at recycling centres, scrapyards, landfills, and any other waste management facilities since 1st January 2022. If possible, please also highlight any incidents where other regional fire services have been brought in to assist in putting out these fires - this is not completely necessary, but will help us to build a more accurate picture of this year’s waste fire incidents.
As part of our efforts to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by electricity in the UK, we are putting together a report on e-scooter and e-bike safety. The information gathered will be used by our public affairs, media, and technical teams to drive campaigns and research for improvement in the safety associated with fire risk.
I'd like to make the following request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000:
> Number of callouts to fires where "air fryer" is named as the cause in each of the following calendar years: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. Please include any available details on the number/type of injuries, deaths and length of time to put each fire out.
I request to be supplied with data on the causes of fires reported to Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service, including but not limited to those started by disposable BBQs, cigarette litter, broken/discarded glass bottles and sky lanterns. I request that this data is broken down at least by month, for the last 24 months.
If available, I also request information on the duration and damage caused by those fires and the cost incurred by your service.
