  1. How many vehicles in Derby and Derbyshire have been damaged by fire engines so far this year? Please could you split the figures into whether the engines were responding to an emergency or not. If possible could you also split the figures into severity in terms of damage.
  2. How many fire service personnel have been injured in road traffic collisions so far this year? Again please split the figures into severity in terms of injures (fatal, life-threatening, minor etc).
