Firefighters from Hampshire and Berkshire have finished their two-hour morning strikes at 8am this morning.
Royal Berkshire Fire Service received four calls during the Fire Brigades Union between 6am and 8am and none of these required the attendance of a fire engine.
Andy Mancey, Berkshire Acting Assistant Chief Fire Officer, said: “Once again, we would like to thank members of the public in helping us by not calling us unnecessarily. There were nine appliances available this morning in the event that any incidents occurred.”
Hampshire Assistant Chief Officer Bob Ratcliffe said: "We dealt with relatively few incidents during the strike periods and we would like to thank all members of our communities for taking extra care during the recent industrial action."
