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  

and whether there are any predicted stats for 2019? 

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

Is it possible when looking out the above to show peak times in which hoax calls were made in 2018, and does this follow any patterns set in previous five years (2013-2017)?
