Become a Volunteer and Help your Local Community

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) is looking for volunteers to work alongside local fire crews to help improve the safety of the most vulnerable people in the community.

Based at Wokingham Fire Station, volunteers will assist RBFRS with a range of services, including helping to provide home fire safety checks and delivering vital safety messages. In return, the volunteering programme will enable volunteers to meet new people, enhance their CV and gain valuable work experience. Volunteers will also receive expenses, as well as regular training and on-going support to enable them to improve fire safety within their community.

Alan Battman, Station Commander at Wokingham Fire Station, said: “The crews and I are looking forward to the volunteers joining us at Wokingham Fire Station. Our volunteer scheme aims to engage and help the more vulnerable people within the community.

“Volunteering is something that you can do for a few hours in your spare time and offers a great opportunity to learn new skills. If you’re going to make a New Year’s resolution, then why not become a volunteer at Wokingham Fire Station and help contribute towards everyone in our community living safe and fulfilling lives. Volunteering at Wokingham Fire Station means that we can get right to the heart of the community where we can do our best work.”

You don’t need any previous experience, but you must be over 18 years old.
