Hydrants

Request detail: 

I would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Details, dates and locations, of all fire incidents (in 2016, 2017 and 2018) where your crews attending mentioned (verbal or written) that they experienced issues with low, or no, water pressure from the fire hydrant that was located closest to the fire.

Details, dates and locations, of all fire incidents (in 2016, 2017 and 2018) where your crews attending mentioned (verbal or written) that they tapped into an alternative fire hydrant located further away, because the fire hydrant closest to the fire site was not able to supply the required volume of water at the required pressure.

 

For any incidents listed above, please supply any notes on the incident and also the approximate distance between the fire location and:

1) the closest fire hydrant that was not usable and;

2) the fire hydrant with adequate water pressure that the crews tapped into.

Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request.

 

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service does not routinely record  the information you have requested,  however a search of our Incident Reporting System using the following key words has revealed one incident: "Hydrant" AND "Pressure" AND either "Low" or "no". Please note that any personal data has been removed.
