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

Bicester fire station currently has a crew of 25 Firefighters that attend a vast array of incidents in and around Bicester town. These incidents have recently included fire, animal rescues, flooding and road traffic collisions. With Bicester’s close proximity to the M40 and A34 Bicester are very used to dealing with these Road Traffic collisions.

A lot of training occurs both on and off station to ensure that all the fire fighters can operate safely at these incidents in what are very often dangerous situations.

Recently some of our trainee fire fighters have been attending a Road Traffic Collision course at Eynsham where they have been taught the science of road crashes and then practice safely cutting up vehicles, opening them up to create space and then in a controlled fashion extricate casualties.

All fire fighters undergo this training and the periodically are refreshed in these skills to ensure we are both safe and effective in our work.
