FOI / 3802 / 2018 Co-responding attendances

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.

Initial request:

On how many occasions did your fire and rescue service provide an emergency medical response (to which the service was not required to attend otherwise) because

(a) Its attendance was triggered by means of it being the designated first responder under a co-responder arrangement, broken down by arrangement type (for example out-of-hospital cardiac arrest initiatives), or

(b) Because there were no ambulances available, or

(c) Other, broken down by reasons.

I would like the above information to be provided to me as electronic copies.

Final response:

Please see the excel spreadsheet attached. Unfortunately we are only able to answer the first part of question (a) as we wouldn?t be able to obtain the arrangement type as a matter of course.
