Training

A group of fire fighters standing infront of the church

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 - December 2015

Incidents of interest

During December Chipping Norton crews attended property fires, alarms and gave assistance to the ambulance service, working tirelessly to keep the community of Chipping Norton safe.  

Community fire safety

Pupils from Chipping Norton school visited the station for a road traffic collision demonstration put on by local fire crews to highlight the dangers of drunk and drug driving.

Children watching fire fighters

They watched the crews cut a ‘casualty’ free from the wrecked car and the process that the three emergency services go through to save life and reduce the risk of further injury. This was well received by those that attended with lots of positive interaction.

Working smoke alarm?

smoke alarm

Will you hear your smoke alarm beep if you’re asleep? When was the last time you checked your smoke alarm?

• You should have at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home.
• Testing your smoke alarms weekly to make sure they work.

If you don’t have a working smoke alarm you are four times more likely to die in a fire at home.

Working smoke alarms are the best and easiest way to alert you to the danger of fire, giving you and your family precious time to escape.
