Freedom of Information 


The Freedom of Information Act (FOI) introduced a statutory right of access to information held by public authorities from 1 January 2005.

Information on Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Authority and the Fire and Rescue Service is available on this Website.

You can also request information from us. The Freedom of Information Act requires all requests for information to:

  • be in writing (which includes a request transmitted by electronic means), in legible form and capable of being used for subsequent reference.
  • state the name of the applicant and a correspondence address.
  • describe the information requested.

Please send your request for information to:


Post The Information Officer, Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, Southfields Road, Kempston, Bedford, MK42 7NR

Publication Scheme

Every public authority must produce and maintain a publication scheme (.PDF) to ensure that a significant amount of information is made available to the public without the need for a specific request. 

Our publication scheme (.PDF) includes information about the Freedom of Information Act, our commitment to openness, what a publication scheme is, how publication schemes work and how to contact us.


The scheme outlines the different information we publish, the types of information available, details of how it is made available and any charges that might apply.
