Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides the general right of access to information which we hold, subject to a number of exemptions, such as where the information is personal information, which is protected by the Data Protection Act 1998, or where the cost of providing the information exceeds a certain limit.

What's new?

This section of the website is new and brings together the previously separate pages on Freedom of Information (FoI), from our Publications and Contact Us sections.  You can now view a range of previous requests made, including our responses to them, as well as more information about FoI.

Time Limits

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service will acknowledge your request as soon as possible and we will respond to your request within 20 working days. If we seek clarification from you regarding the request then we can stop the clock and a revised date will be implemented.

Requesting Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 states that all requests must be received in writing - via our webform, post, email or fax.

A name and contact address should be provided for correspondence. (This can be an email address, however a postal address will be required if you require paper copies of the information.) You need to provide details about the information that is being requested. This should be as clear as possible to enable us to quickly locate the information you require.

Please view our Request and Responses section before making a request as the information you require may have already been published.

Publication Scheme - your guide to information

This guide explains how to find information we make available routinely. To make it easy for you to find what you need, it is split into seven categories.  This is the set of pages that used to reside under our Publications section.
