EIR 1676 / January 2024 / Fleet List

Thank you for your request under the Environmental Information Regulations.

We can confirm that Essex County Fire & Rescue Service does hold the information you have requested.

Please see below the answer to your request.

Questions and final response:

Question 1 - Have all the new appliances been allocated to stations, if so can you provide an up to date fleetlist containing their reg.nos., stations and hand down moves please ?

Please see attached updated list of the Essex County Fire & Rescue Service Fleet.

This list shows where the appliances are currently stationed.

You may find it helpful to cross reference the appliances on this list with a Fleet List that was published as part of an information request responded to in the summer of 2023.

You can find this response online via our Transparency Site (EIR1626 August 2023) .

Further to the list, I must advise you that we have redacted the vehicles registrations for the cars that are leased under our Officer Car Lease Scheme, the leaseholders of these vehicles are individual officers/members of staff, therefore the Registrations for these vehicles is personal data and should not be published.

We apply EIR Regulation 12(3) & Regulation 13: EIR Regulation 12(3) & Regulation 13 - Personal data of third parties is exempt if disclosure would breach the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998.

We believe that providing you with the information would breach the following Data Protection principles:

Data shall be fairly and lawfully processed.

Data shall be processed for limited purposes.

We are applying this exception because. 

a)  we do not have the consent of the person who is the subject of the information to disclose it to you,

b)  disclosure does not meet any of the schedule 2 conditions that would make it “necessary”, and

c)  disclosure of the information to you would not be connected to the purpose for which we have collected and are holding the information.

We further believe that the release of the requested information would cause unwarranted interference to the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject(s).

Such a disclosure would in our view constitute a breach of Article 8 in the Human Rights Act (the right to privacy and family life). In such circumstances this is an absolute exception.

In accordance with the Regulations, this letter acts as a refusal notice.

We hope this information is useful to you.
