Water Rescue Incidents



Request detail: 

 I am collating data regarding non-fatal water rescue incident data across the West Mercia region.
Whilst I can access some general information publically published by SFRS, my analysis work requires more detailed information relating to gender, age and ethnicity.
I wish to request information relating to non-fatal water rescue incidents please. Such a dataset would require: date and time, location (by Eastings & Northings or lat/long), gender, age, Station ground, whether or not drugs / alcohol suspected, whether or not a victim was involved. In compliance with GDPR, I am not looking for incident narratives or names. if the data could cover 2015 to 2021 please
