Access to information

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service recognises the value of the information that we collect and store.

As part of commitment to openness, many of our strategic and operational documents are available through our publication scheme. You can also request information under the Freedom of Information Act or request a report on a specific incident.

Personal information requests

Find out how we collect and use your data.

You can find out if we hold any personal information about you by making a Subject Access request under the Data Protection Act.

If we do have personal information about you, we will provide a copy. We will reply with your information within 1 month of receiving your request, or from the day that we receive the information needed to confirm your identity.

There are some lawful restrictions on the information we send you – for example, other people’s personal information.
