Station update - March 2015

March has been a busy month for Bampton Fire Station; the crews have attended a number of incidents across the local area and supported a number of larger incidents across Oxfordshire.

Two fire appliances and firfighters working at night.

Also they have been hard at work training and this month they have taken part in an area exercise at Witney Town FC, becoming familiar with the new Breathing Apparatus guidance and preparing themselves for the change over to the new Thames Valley Control Service.

A number of the crews also attended the Specialist Fire Training in Wycombe where they experienced and extinguished fires that reached temperatures of over 500°.

The Station also attended a number of homes in the area giving home Fire Safety Advice and spoke to a number of local groups.

This month has also seen another member of the local community become an On-call firefighter and will start their basic training in April. If you are interested in becoming an On-call firefighter feel free to call in to the station to find out more.

Dusting of your motorbike?

If you are dusting off your bike and planning on blowing away the winter cobwebs, give your bike a Think! health check before you set off.

As the days are getting warmer and the evenings lighter more motorcyclists will be on our roads. Both motorcyclists and drivers can help make motorcycling safer.
