Tēnā koe John,
– F3739393 - 16 Cornish Place, Cromwell
I refer to your official information request dated 15 May 2023 asking for a copy of the Incident
Report for OIA - F3739393 - 16 Cornish Place, Cromwell.
In accordance with the provisions of the Official Information Act 1982 (“OIA”), I enclose
Incident Report. Some personal information has been withheld to protect the privacy of natural
persons under section 9(2)(a) of the OIA. We do not consider that there is a public interest in the
release of the information which outweighs withholding it.
Please note the SMS Incident Report provided to you is generated by Fire and Emergency New
Zealand’s electronic station management system (SMS Report). In SMS Reports, ‘Notifications’
and ‘Message Log’ fields are reported in real time as fire crews and our communication centres
communicate with each other during the incident. They are not the official final records of
incidents but word for word transcripts of ‘live’ situations as they occur. They may contain
spelling errors or commonly used abbreviations.
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision.
Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
