Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) would like to invite residents of Crowthorne and neighbouring areas to come and hear more about the planned re-build of the Fire Station.
The event will be held at Crowthorne Fire Station on the High Street, on Wednesday, 30 May, between 3pm and 7pm.
The Station is set for a complete re-build and the work will deliver a contemporary Fire Station, as well as providing facilities for community use. The plans include provision for the next Tri-Service Community Station with Thames Valley Police and South Central Ambulance Service to operate alongside RBFRS.
Councillor Angus Ross, Strategic Asset Lead for Royal Berkshire Fire Authority, said: “We are delighted to be opening up the Station for this exhibition so that local people can view the latest plans for the rebuild and find out what it could mean for the local area.
“The design of the new station at Crowthorne will be modern and fit-for-purpose, with the intention to place the station firmly in the heart of the community it serves. It is hoped that the project will follow in the successful footsteps of Hungerford Community Fire Station, which was opened in July 2017.”
While the Fire Station is being re-built, the retained (on-call) crew and fire engine will be turning out from an alternative location in close proximity to the High Street. Therefore, operational response of the station is maintained, details of which will be made available shortly.
The crew and fire engine are anticipating relocation around Easter 2019, with the works due to be complete towards the end of the summer 2020. Please be aware that these timescales are indicative.
