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.

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.
