Number of Fire and Rescue Service call outs to help move bariatric patients (FOI)

Number of Fire and Rescue Service call outs to help move bariatric patients (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 31 July 2015.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Please provide me with the number of times the Fire Service has been contacted to provide assistance with moving a clinically obese person over the last five years, including the total for this year so far (2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010).

Please provide information for each year from January to December.

For each incident please provide a summary explaining the nature of the call out and equipment used.


Prior to 16 March 2015, the Service’s electronic incident reporting system did not gather the information requested regarding bariatric patients in this level of detail. Therefore we are unable to comply with the request prior to this date as the information is not held.

However, our records show that since 16 March 2015, the States of Jersey Fire and Rescue Service has assisted the States of Jersey Ambulance Service in the movement of one bariatric patient.

The States of Jersey Fire and Rescue Service does not hold any further information with respect to the details of this incident or any specialist equipment used during the incident.
