Coronavirus Business Safety

Royal Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service (RBFRS) is mindful of the impact that Covid-19 is currently having on our local businesses in our County, and we know that this is a challenging time for everyone.  You may be experiencing a significant increase or decrease in business demand, which may have resulted in changes to staffing levels, occupancy numbers and other changes to your business premises that may require the need to review your fire safety measures.

We are here to support you the best we can during these challenging times, whilst ensuring you still comply with Fire Safety Legislation to keep all staff, customers, and visitors safe whilst on your premises. 

Please follow the tabs for the additional fire safety advice that has been collated to support you and your business during the current climate.

Our Fire Safety Inspecting Officers continue to work and support businesses across Berkshire during these unprecedented times. Please visit this site for regular updates and/or follow our social media:
