Stay safe and warm

A roaring fire may be a welcoming site on a cold day but only if it is contained within the grate where it should be.

Fire place with burning logs

Don’t overload your fire place, make sure embers are under control and put out properly before you go out or to bed and use a British Standard fire guard to prevent sparks escaping.

Complete a home fire risk check

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging residents to make sure they are fully aware of the fire hazards which commonly exist throughout the home, how to identify them and what to do should a fire occur, by completing a quick online home fire risk check.

Station update - October 2015

The station this month has seen a couple of the staff successfully pass some of the initial tests to become a manager. They were put through their paces to ensure that they are able to become an Incident Commander and manage any type of emergency. Both of the crew did very well and will be an excellent addition to the management in Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue.

The crew have been to Rewley Road Fire station where there is the live fire training facility and practised their skills in firefighting. The crew are very experienced and demonstrated an excellent standard of knowledge.

Burford school has had a visit from the crew, where they were given a talk on the Choices and Consequences of driving a vehicle at speed or under the influence of drink and drugs. This is a hard hitting message that has been delivered to many children of Oxfordshire just before they set out on the journey to learn to drive.

If you are interested in becoming a firefighter at Burford, please come down to the station on a Wednesday evening from 7pm and speak to the crew to see if it suits you.
