Road Flood Incidents



Request detail: 

So to help with our case study, we're trying to build a picture in each County of the locations and number of incidents Fire & Rescue Service are involved with where cars/ motorists needed recoverd over a period of say the last 5-10 years, either in flood blackspots or river fords(if this data is available). We realise this is only part of the data as not all incidents would have involved Fire & Rescue Services. We are also trying to quantify the savings per annum.(Insurance claims, Public services)

Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please find attached a spreadsheet containing the number and location of incidents where cars/motorists have been recovered from water over the last 5 years by Shropshire Fire and Rescue.

- Rescue or evacuation from Water (with the sub categories Other; Person assisted through or across public highway covered by water; Person in or on top of vehicle that is surrounded by moving or rising water greater than (2) foot deep).
