Non-emergency Visits to Care Homes

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) is strongly committed to playing its part in helping to protect care home residents and staff from the spread of COVID-19.

Therefore, in line with guidance provided by the National Fire Chiefs’ Council, when entering care homes in non-emergency situations, RBFRS is encouraging its staff to demonstrate their vaccination status on a COVID Pass Letter, the NHS App or the NHS Website.

RBFRS continues to maintain a risk-based approach in relation to ensuring both the fire safety of staff and residents, while assisting in preventing the transmission of COVID-19.
