Bird rescues by Fire and Rescue Service (FOI)

Bird rescues by Fire and Rescue Service (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 20 December 2017.


I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (UK legislation) to request the following information:

How many pigeons have you have rescued in the last five years? This number may also include other wild birds such as ravens, pigeons and magpies.

Where have the birds been rescued from?

How much has been spent in total on the rescue of pigeons or other wild birds?

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits please provide advice and assistance as to how my request could be refined.


Similar requests, covering all animal rescues, have been answered in the past. Please follow the links below to see responses up to 2015:

Animal rescues (FOI)

In 2016, the Jersey Fire and Rescue Service (JFRS) Incident Reporting System (IRS) was replaced. Since then, JFRS do not record animal species / types in their reporting. The information requested is therefore not held.
