Just one call was received by Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) headquarters at Dee Road in Tilehurst in the four hour period from 6pm when firefighters downed tools but it did not require any action.
Acting Assistant Chief Fire Officer Andy Mancey said: “I would like to thank the public once again for taking extra care to reduce the risk of fire and for not calling us unnecessarily during the strike period.
“Please continue to follow our fire safety and road safety advice whether strike action is taking place or not.”
