Please see below the answer to your request.

Questions and final response:

I would like to know on how many occasions over the year a fire appliance has been unavailable due to insufficient crewing levels. 

For each occasion, please could you provide the date, length of time the appliance was unavailable, type of appliance and the station it is based at. 

Please could I have this information for the years 2015, 2019 and 2020 (not including subsequent years). 


Please see attached spreadsheet.

We do not hold availability data for 2015. 


Thank you for your interest in Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, we hope this satisfies your request.
