Six new retained firefighters have been recruited by our Service after completing a joint training course run between Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service and Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service.
A total of eight firefighters from the two counties have passed the initial training course, which consisted of four pre-course drill night training sessions and a two week intensive course to learn the basic foundation skills of being a firefighter.
Six of the new recruits will be serving at various stations in Royal Berkshire and two will be serving at stations in Oxfordshire. They will now be issued a pager and respond with the rest of the crew to incidents.
Three of the new recruits will be posted at Maidenhead Fire Station, two at Crowthorne Fire Station and one at Wargrave Fire Station.
We are also currently recruiting retained firefighters in Pangbourne, Hungerford, Lambourn and Mortimer.
