Fire crews attended 10 calls during their 24 hour strike period.
Between 9am on Thursday and 9am on Friday firefighters across the country went on strike over proposed changes to pension plans.
But the fire service still attended important call outs with a priority given to 'critical' incidents. Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service received 26 calls, 10 of which required attendance.
Yesterday they were dispatched to emergencies in Wokingham, Woodley, Newbury, Tilehurst, and Warfield Park.
In the early hours of this morning fire crews attended a flat fire in Lincoln Way, Slough, although there were no casualties. This was followed by a house fire in Wokingham, a car fire and crash in Finchampstead and a kitchen fire in Bracknell.
Acting assistant chief fire officer Andy Mancey said: "Our contingency arrangements worked well and members of the public have once again helped us by calling 999 only when necessary."
A seven hour strike is scheduled for Saturday, June 21, between 10am and 5pm.
