Hope you are well. I'm a reporter with the podcast 99% Invisible. To my understanding, "encampment related fires" are a category the department uses to track fires. If not, can you advise me on how to narrow my request? If there is data related to this category I am looking for the following:
Since the start of 2019, how many fires has the Oakland Fire department responded to that are considered encampment-related or near a homeless encampment?
Can you provide an index or spreadsheet that indicate how many fires the Oakland's Fire department has responded to that are encampment related between 2015-2018? Are there any annual reports that contain estimates or numbers of fires between this period?
