Station update - September 2015

Red watch Didcot were invited to the Women’s institute to talk about fire safety and chimney fires, the ladies were very impressed with our talk and even had a go spraying water in the car park.

An eldely lady holding a fire hose spraying water watched by a firefighter and several more elderly ladies.

Red watch also helped out with a display at Sainsbury’s in conjunction with the Chimney Fire Safety Week giving out safety leaflets and answering questions regarding chimney safety.
