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.
