Fire Cadet Unit

At the start of the New Year Bicester started up a Fire Cadet Unit at the station.

A group of fire cadets.

Fire Cadets provide an opportunity for Youths aged 12 to 17 years to meet one evening each week for two hours and follow a structured program of core Fire and Rescue activities, delivered by a long established group of supervisors. Each unit can accommodate 16 Fire Cadets.

Our Fire Cadets scheme is about having fun as well as learning. Fire Cadets are not confined solely to Fire and Rescue Service activities; they are also given the opportunity to take part in additional activities at weekends and during the school holidays which include residential and local camps.

This allows them to build further on the core skills, which are gained through the training sessions, as well as increasing confidence and resilience in facing new challenges. They are given the opportunity to participate in a variety of other activities such as: camping, canoeing, ice skating and bowling etc.

Station update - June 2016

The crew at Bicester have seen an increase in “shouts” this month. The storms have created some made hazardous driving conditions causing an increase in road traffic accidents attended. The storms too at the start of the month had a significant impact on the station. The downpour in and around Thame caused many properties and roads to flood. The Bicester crew were kept busy assisting our colleges in the Thame area.

Away from Fire & Rescue incidents we get invited to many events this time of year to support local events in the town. This gives us an opportunity to share public safety messages with people we meet. One of these recently was the “Big Lunch” a special event in the town to celebrate the Queens 90th Birthday.
