Fire Chief Pete Rackham giving me the details
beside the brand new Fire Pump

What a lot of excitement outside Hungerford Arcade when a Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue fire engine, siren screaming, pulled up.  Fire Chief, Pete Rackham said the fire alarm is going off in an upstairs office a couple of doors down from the Arcade.  The offices were not open because of it being a Bank Holiday so if there is smoke or flames, the Fire Brigade will have to break in.  The ladders were quickly off loaded from the brand new pump and it was action stations.  The Fire Chief, phoned the proprietor of the building and he was on his way down.

Thankfully, it turned out to be a false alarm, but the speed and efficiency of the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service was wonderful to see.
