I work for an Insurance Company and I am doing a pricing review for fire where I determine suitable fire premiums to charge for different types of commercial property based on their historical fire experience.
I am wondering whether you are able to supply me with some data for my review. I am looking for the following information for all primary fires, involving commercial buildings only, that your Fire Service has attended over the last ten years or so:
date of call
time of call
address of fire
postcode of fire
first pump arriving attendance time
second pump arriving attendance time
number of pumps attending
length of fire brigade attendance
time fire started
time fire put out
floor area damaged
main cause of ignition
Please find attached incident sheets from 2015 to 2018.
The Jersey Fire and Rescue Service do not hold all of the information that you request.
The following information is held and included in the attached:
Year, month, incident number, call sign, time of call, time in attendance, time of stop, incident class, type of property, source of ignition.
JFRS Incident sheets from 2015 to 2018
The Jersey Fire and Rescue Service are unable to release address, business or postal code as such release is exempt under Article 33(b) of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. It is considered that disclosure of specific address information may compromise future commercial discussions for those businesses affected.
Article 33 Commercial interests
Information is qualified exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes a trade secret; or
(b) its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of a person (including the scheduled public authority holding the information).
