Volunteer Community Champion

We are committed to promoting fire safety to the residents of Berkshire, volunteers are integral to the organisation and help us to ensure we are reaching people across the county.

Over the last year Volunteers have enabled us to increase the number of home fire safety checks, raise the profile of the organisation and ensure we promote the service to people most at risk from fires.

We value the contribution volunteers make to the Fire and Rescue Service, as a volunteer you will be part of a team committed to ensuring people are able to lead safe and fulfilling lives.
