Training

Earlier this year we were kindly allowed to train at St Mary’s Church. The training involved rescuing a casualty from the tower who had injured themselves whilst carrying out maintenance work on the bells.

The crew from Chipping Norton worked closely with the specialist line rescue team based at Kidlington.  A system of lines was set up and the casualty was rescued on a stretcher then lowered through the trap doors in the tower.

The crews gained valuable experience and knowledge from this training and the church some reassurance.

Station update - July 2016

Incidents of interest

During July Chipping Norton crews have attended Alarms, Road Traffic Collisions, Vehicle fires, Domestic fires, Commercial fires, Flooding, and helped colleagues from other emergency services.

A 30-tonne lorry caught fire on the A361 London Road near Chipping Norton.

Crews from Chipping Norton were called at around 5pm and arrived on the scene within minutes. They found the cab of lorry carrying aggregate was fully engulfed by fire. Fire fighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the blaze using high pressure water jets. Due to the size of the fire and the potential for large amounts of diesel that a vehicle of this size can carry, an additional fire engine from Charlbury Fire Station was sent in support.

Taster Day

On Saturday 23rd July the crews at Chipping Norton Fire Station hosted a taster day for anyone interested in seeing what it is like to be an On Call Firefighter. There were a variety of activities to try out and hopefully managed to bring out the budding Firefighter from those that came along.
