Station update - July 2016

Incidents of interest

During July Charlbury crews attended Alarms, Road Traffic Collisions, Fires, provided support to neighbouring stations and helped other stations at small and large incidents during busy periods.

The crew was also called to assist Chipping Norton Firefighters in dealing with a lorry fire. This was due to the size of the fire and the potential hazards caused by the large amounts of diesel that a vehicle of this size can carry. When they arrived on the scene they found the cab of the lorry fully engulfed in fire. Fire fighters from both stations wore breathing apparatus to tackle the blaze using high pressure water jets.
