Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) took part in an external Fire and Rescue Peer Challenge in February 2014. The process is

assessment and is a voluntary process that forms part of the Local Government Association’s (LGA) and Chief Fire Officers’ Association’s
(CFOA) work on self-regulation and improvement. If you would like more information on the process, please contact Nicole Targett on
