Banbury Fire Cadets

The cadet unit at Banbury fire station has been running since 2005 and meets on a Thursday evening between 6:30pm and 8:30pm term time only.

The majority of our instructors are whole time firefighters based at Banbury fire station, who bring a wealth of both technical and practical knowledge to the cadet sessions.

Banbury fire cadets get to see many aspects of the fire and rescue service. Banbury fire station offers training facilities others cannot, such as the purpose built smokehouse used for realistic breathing apparatus training.

Whilst there is a serious aspect to the training, the intention is to make all the sessions interesting and with an element of fun.

In addition to the fire cadet training nights, we also hold fundraising events with proceeds helping the Banbury cadet unit and local charities, as well as The Fire Fighters Charity.

Station update

The crews at Banbury have been busy with responding to operational incidents and training this month. A variety of incidents have been successfully dealt with which include a number of road traffic collisions, a chimney fire and a bolt of lightning striking a transformer.

On the training front the crews have been training on the new incident command guidance that is being rolled out nationally to all fire and rescue services. This guidance is designed to assist our incident commanders on their decision making at incidents and enhance public and firefighter safety.

On the charity front two firefighters from White watch on the station have been hard at work in the saddle of their bikes training in preparation for the John O Groats to Lands End cycle ride.

Fire fighters Adam Whitehead and Morgan Staveley are joining colleagues from other parts of the county including the Chief Fire Officer, to cycle the route over ten days in aid of the firefighter’s charity.  They set off from Scotland on 13 May 2016 and we wish them luck in their quest.
