Fire Service dogs (FOI)

Fire Service dogs (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 24 April 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.



How many dogs were part of the fire service for each of the last ten calendar years (2012-2022), broken down by job type. (for example, Fire investigation search dog)?


Please list the main breeds used in the totals in question A. Please list the most commonly used breeds first. 


How many full time members of staff (trainers, handlers, officers and any others) were working in the service’s dog unit for each of the years in the same period? 


What was the service’s total budget for each of these years and how much was allocated to the dog unit? 


Does the service have its own dog breeding unit?  

I would like the above information to be provided to me in a table format on a searchable document or spreadsheet.


The States of Jersey Fire and Rescue Service do not have dogs for any purpose and as such have no allocated budget, trainers, handlers.
