Station update - March 2015

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

Also they have been hard at work training and this month they have taken part in an area exercise at Witney Town FC, making themselves familiar with the new Breathing Apparatus guidance, and in the coming months they are due to attend the Fire Service College for some realistic training.

The Station also attended a number of homes in the area and given Home Fire Safety Advice.

If you are interested in becoming an On-call firefighter feel free to call in to the station on Wednesday evenings from 7pm - 9pm 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.
