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


There has been a fire service in Maidenhead since 1866. The current fire station was opened in 1977 and serves a population of around 80,000 people within the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. 
The station’s wholetime section is supported by 12 retained firefighters. 
Maidenhead has six front line appliances – the most of any Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service station. They include one wholetime fire engine, one 4×4 fire engine crewed by the retained crew, two 4×4 pumping off-road vehicles switch crewed with one of the fire engines, one 4×4 Land Rover with a portable pumping capability, the multi-role vehicle and the Incident Command Unit that is crewed by the retained personnel.
