Cost of Guy Fawkes response.

Andrew Crow made this Official Information request to Fire and Emergency New Zealand

The request was partially successful.

From: Andrew Crow

Dear Fire and Emergency New Zealand,

There is significant debate around if fireworks should be banned or not.

I feel that a important part of that debate should be the cost of fire service response to fires related to fireworks.

Under OIA I request:

1. Total number of call outs (false alarm or not) that are related to fireworks.
2. Total cost per call out in question #1

For the purpose of this OIA can you give data from 1st November 2020 through to 9th November 2020.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Crow
