Station update - October 2015

This month has seen the station hard at work practising using the equipment that is carried on both appliances that are held at the station. There has also been a new addition to the staff at Eynsham with Lewis Rankin the latest addition to the On-call staff. Lewis has been one of the first firefighters to experience the new training course that is being carried out at the world class training facilities at the Fire Service College Morton-in-Marsh. He will learn all the new skills that are required to become a firefighter and then he should be ready for operational duties in November.

The crew are carrying out some visits to local businesses to ensure that they are fully aware of the sites to ensure that if an incident did occur they would be familiar with some of the risks that could be present on the site.

Next month the crew will be attending the Fire Service College to take part in some training scenarios to ensure that they are trained and prepared for various types of emergencies.

If you are interested in becoming a firefighter at Eynsham, please come down to the station on a Tuesday evening from 7pm and speak to the crew to see if it suits you.

Stay safe and warm

A roaring fire may be a welcoming site on a cold day but only if it is contained within the grate where it should be.

Fire place with burning logs

Don’t overload your fire place, make sure embers are under control and put out properly before you go out or to bed and use a British Standard fire guard to prevent sparks escaping.
