Please can you provide me with the following information for the annual years 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 (up until the date this email is received).
Please provide the figures by year. e.g for the first bullet point, 2018: 50 properties, 2019: 41 properties, 2018: 13 properties etc.
The number of properties your fire service has been called out to as a result of a gas explosion, compressed gas, or a gas leak evacuation.
If possible, can you break down this number by those three categories and give a separate number for each. e.g. 2018: gas explosion 10, compressed gas 12, gas leak evacuation 9.
The number of people evacuated as a result of a gas explosion, compressed gas, or gas leak. Similarly can I have that number broken down by category.
If you only record the number of evacuations made by the force please can you provide that in a similar format.
Please find below the data requested regarding incidents attended by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service involving gas explosions, compressed gas, or gas leak evacuations between 1st January 2018 to date.
Evacuation (no fire) >> Explosion (no fire)
Evacuation (no fire) >> Gas Leak
Hazardous Materials incident >> Class 2: Gases >> Environmental containment
Hazardous Materials incident >> Class 2: Gases >> No containment required
There is no specific category within the Incident Recording System to record incidents involving compressed gas. Therefore, I have provided data using the Hazardous Materials incident category of Gases which includes compressed gas.
Specific numbers regarding evacuations are difficult to provide as some are recorded as a range (e.g. 21 to 50) depending on the type of property involved. Therefore, I have attached the full dataset for you to use as you require.
