Station update - February 2015

Incidents of interest

During February Charlbury crews have attended chimney fires, property fires, RTC’s, alarms and helped at other stations during busy periods. Some of these larger RTC’s were alongside the crews from other stations in Oxfordshire but their skill and expertise meant that these incidents were dealt with quickly with minimal disruption to the community.

Community fire safety

The station continues to work hard to ensure the safety of people in Charlbury and the surrounding communities.

This month also saw a visit to the Fire Station from the children at Charlbury Primary School where they had a great time and learnt some valuable lessons on how to stay safe. There is plenty of great advice on how to keep yourself safe in your own home, just visit for more information.


We currently have two people applying to join at Charlbury, but could do with more. So if you, a friend, or family member is interested please contact Deb Lamb (07554 116580) or call into the Station for a chat.

Come and join Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service to protect the community of Charlbury, develop new skills and qualities in this highly rewarding career.

Get spring off to a good start

A sleeping child surrounded by smoke from a fire.The clocks going forward on the 29 March signals the start of British summer time.

There is no better time to check your smoke alarms at the same time as setting your clocks.

It takes just a minute to maintain this small item, but a working smoke alarm could save you and your family’s lives:

• get into the Test it Tuesday routine and test your smoke alarm once a week by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds.

• twice a year open the case and gently vacuum the inside to remove dust from the sensor. If it doesn't open, vacuum through the holes.

• if the alarm ever starts to 'beep' regularly, replace the battery as soon as possible.

It’s also a perfect opportunity to test the smoke alarm for older relatives, friends or neighbours who might find it hard to reach their alarms.
