Station update

Blue Watch from Abingdon Fire Station recently took part in a joint exercise at Dalton Barracks with the Royal Air Force, the South Central Ambulance Service HART Team, and Thames Valley Police.

The purpose of the exercise was to test the RAF response to a military aircraft crash, and how the RAF would work with partner agencies in the event of such an event.

The exercise provided many learning points and the RAF expressed their thanks to OFRS for our participation. For more information please contact Watch Manager Lee Swain.

What’s the key to a
great night out?

This December if you are out and about partying or visiting family and friends leave your car keys at home, don’t drink and drive, book a taxi, catch a bus, walk or have a designated driver.

The effects of alcohol can still last into the morning after a drinking session. If you’re driving to work or dropping the kids at school the next morning, don’t get caught out, you could still be over the drink drive limit, even if you feel fine.

How have our prevention activities helped to reduce fires in the Abingdon area?

There were 26 property fires, we didn’t want any more than 46.
