FOI / 3786 / 2018 - Stations with specialist capability

Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I can confirm that Essex County Fire & Rescue Service does hold this information.

Please find our response to your request on the accompanying document.

Initial request:

Please may you provide a list of all stations which have the following specialist capability (see bullet points).

It is of note, that I would like this information to be as updated as possible; by this, if there is a planned station(s) which will have a specialist capability in the future, please use that future allocation. In summary, all of these specialist capability stations should be applicable by 2020, where most movements would have been conducted by then. An example: Off-Road Vehicles: Stansted, Manningtree, Billericay and South Woodham - these are not the current allocations, but they soon will be - therefore i would like the information to be collated like this. If there are no confirmed movements in the future for a particular capability, or it has already happened, then please use the most recent allocation(s).
