Please see below the answer to your request.

Initial Request:

Would you be able to provide me with the appropriate information relating to the Dovercourt Fire Station please. I would like to know how many times in the last six months that the second appliance (crewed by on call Fire fighters) wasn't available. Could you also confirm that if both appliances were responding to a call out, Dovercourt and the surrounding area would have to rely on an appliance from either Manningtree, Clacton or Colchester, which would mean a minimum of a 20 minute drive away.

Final Response:

Please find attached a spreadsheet with the data requested.

Please note that the response and data released to you as part of this request will be published on the Essex County Fire & Rescue Service website.
