Please provide the following information under the freedom of information act:
"How many compensation claims have there been from staff and the public within your service area in 2013?"
(compensation claims being defined as a monetary settlement for any injury or other distress claimed for by a person against your service)
Please provide a breakdown of each individual claim, providing details of what role the claimant was in and what they claimed for, plus each individual settlement cost.
There have been four employer liability claims notified to SF&RS from 1st January 2013 to 31st December 2013. There were no Public Liability claims notified during that time.
The four employer liability claims were received from operational personnel who claimed for personnel injuries, but as yet none of the four claims have been settled; so to disclose further information may jeopardise the claims.
