Station update - November 2015

November has been busy for the crews of Banbury. They have attended a range of incidents from road traffic accidents to fires. It was good to see little disturbance by Bonfire night this year with most people opting for the professionally managed fire work displays around the north of the county, demonstrating that people are becoming more aware of the dangers of reckless use of fireworks and the consequences it can have, supported by the schools education programme that OFRS have undertaken in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council’s Trading Standards.

Banbury’s fire engine also led the parade at this year’s Remembrance Day, also supported by the Banbury Fire Cadets.

Now moving into December and as the days get shorter and colder you will be turning up the heat to keep warm over the winter months. Visit www.365alive.co.uk for tips and advice to keep safe through the festive period.

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.
