FOI / 3678 / 2017 - False alarms in the borough of Southend-on-Sea

I would like to know how many false alarms/calls fire brigades attended in the borough of Southend-on-Sea in 2012-13, 2013-14, 2015-16, 2016-17 please?

Also, what is the cost for attending false alarms?

What was the most popular reason for a false alarm?

Is there any evidence to suggest a fire engine hasn't been able to attend a real alarm/call because of going to a false one?
