Plans to close some of Berkshire's fire stations have been given the go ahead.
The decision was made on Tuesday following a consultation which put seven options to the public as part of a bid to save £1.4m.
The option chosen would see both Pangbourne and Wargrave stations close.
Pangbourne station in West Berkshire will be permanently closed while Wargrave, in Wokingham Borough, will stay open for another year.
At the meeting Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service amended the proposal to allow Wargrave station to remain open if the financial savings can be found elsewhere and that the station increases its availability to 60%.
West Berkshire Conservative Councillor Emma Webster - who sits on the Fire Authority, said: "I understand the concerns raised by residents and the local community.
"I think the most important thing that people need to remember is that residents across the whole of Berkshire will remain safe.
"If the need to dial 999 they will get the service they expect in a prompt and timely manner to assist them in their hour of need."
