FOI 4671 / May 2024 / Incident Data High Rise Residential Buildings - Southend

Thank you for your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

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

Questions and final response:

Question 1 – I need assistance with records of incidents that happened for the listed years below and for the attached high-risk residential buildings.

If I could get a spreadsheet covering the years below but with the full addresses of the buildings, then I could simply filter out each of our attached blocks.

I have checked your incident data page on your 'Transparency Site'; however, each spreadsheet we checked has no building address where the incident happened, making it difficult to identify incidents that occurred in our 15 blocks.

2022-23/2021-22/2020-21/2019-20/2018-19/2017-18/2016-17/2015-16/2014-15/2013-14 and 2012-13.

Clarification – All Incidents are required.
