Incident reports are completed for all incidents attended by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, including fires, special service calls (such as specialist rescue, road traffic collisions, flooding etc) and false alarms.
These reports contain information about the resources used, action taken by the Fire and Rescue Service and, where appropriate, damage to the property and details on the cause of fire related incidents.
Copies of these reports can be requested, however every request we receive must be assessed to make sure that you are entitled to receive a report, and ensure our actions conform to the requirements of the Data Protection Act.
Decisions regarding eligibility to receive documents and information are made on a case by case basis. Requests from local councils, police services, owners or tenants of damaged property, people injured during an incident and any professional or organisation acting on their behalf are generally considered to be reasonable and are likely to be successful.
Copies of these reports can be requested by completing our on-line form. Please note that there may be a charge of £60 (plus VAT at 20%) for each incident report.
