Fire Stations

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) provides cover 24 hours a day, 365 days a year from 18 fire stations across the county of Berkshire, ranging from Langley and Slough in the east to Lambourn and Hungerford in the west.

Fire stations are crewed by a mix of wholetime (full-time) and on-call (retained) firefighters dependent on the risk determined for each area. Fire stations are crewed by a rotating watch duty system of operational personnel, where these watches work the following:

  • Two days of 9am to 6pm 
  • Two nights of 6pm to 9am
  • Four days off-duty


Wargrave fire station is a retained single storey building. The station attends various community engagements each year including school visits, open days, plus many others. Wargrave aims to attend as many events as possible as community engagement is an important to this local community fire station. 
In 1903 when the fire station opened it had a single main appliance bay where the horse drawn pump was stored. As it stands today the station has an extension to house the modern day fire engine length. 
In 1930 a house-to-house collection by the scouts in the village raised the funds to purchase a new Morris Commercial fire engine. This was housed in the present fire station which was built by the firemen themselves. Wokingham District Council took it over in 1938, and the engine was replaced by a Dennis type in 1942.
