Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service is recruiting. 
Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service is recruiting for wholetime firefighters with the application process opening on Monday, 15 July.

The campaign - #OneTeamForBerkshire - aims to give prospective applicants a real insight into the role as there isn’t one stereotypical firefighter. During the campaign, we will be encouraging people of all backgrounds to apply by highlighting the diversity of both the people and the role. To support this, we will be sharing stories of wholetime firefighters currently serving.

This campaign will support our commitment to making a positive difference to increase the diversity of our staff to reflect the communities in the County as agreed in the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion objectives.

RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP - REMINDER 
We received a complaint from a member of the pubic today concerning the behaviour of dogs at the Morgan Recreation Ground yesterday afternoon. The dogs concerned were off their leads and not under the control of their owner. The dogs jumped up at the lady concerned, marking her clothing and causing her alarm/distress to the point she had an asthma attack.
We are therefore reminding dog owners to be mindful of the need to keep dogs under control in a public place. The advice on the RSPCA link below is helpful in explaining the law in this regard.

Thames Valley Police - Important Changes to Medical Information 
You are now required to provide medical information verified by a GP for all firearm and shotgun applications - this includes renewals. This applies to any application, whether declaring a medical condition or not. The change is being implemented to enable the Police to make informed decisions which will protect both the shooting community and the wider public. The change will mean a consistent and fair process for all applicants, and will assist in improving application processing times. The fact you have a condition may not necessarily mean your application is refused. However, a false declaration could result in your prosecution, or your application being refused, or your existing license being revoked and your firearms or shotguns being seized.

This change will affect any application submitted from 1st August 2019...
