Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service

Progress So Far

In March 2023, HMICFRS produced the ‘Values and culture in fire and rescue services’ report which contained 35 recommendations.​ 

​ Twenty of these recommendations were directed at Fire and Rescue Services, and are the ones addressed and commented on in this progress report.​ The remaining 15 recommendations were directed at external bodies such as the Local Government Association, the Home Office and National Fire Chief’s Council. As a result, we are unable to progress these locally.​ 

In our 2024 review, we have completed 13 of the recommendations assigned to us as Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service with a further 6 in progress.​

Our progress will be reviewed annually, the next review will take place in April 2025.
