Station update - July 2015

This month has seen the crews at Burford attend a number of incidents around the local area and beyond. They have also been busy ensuring that they were well practised in using the new Breathing Apparatus control procedures that have recently come in to force.

They are also preparing themselves for a number of training courses that are due to happen over the next month or so, in particular water training.

Recently we have seen one of our latest recruit firefighters successfully pass the demanding recruitment priocess. This involves many physical tests and written tests as well as an in-depth interview. They will start out on the next phase shortly, where they will attend the Basic training course that will be held at the Fire Service College.This course is spread over a number of weekends and involves a number of arduous activities that put them in difficult circumstances, for example in to fast flowing water, operating on fast roads and learning many of the different practises that we carry out in the fire service.

If you are interested or know anybody that would welcome the chance to become an On-Call fire-fighter please attend the Station on a Wednesday evening from 7pm to find out more.
