Station update - September 2015

This month has seen Eynsham attend a number of incidents across the County and recently they were one of the first crews to be committed to the large fire at Marsh Road Cowley where a number of buildings were damaged by fire.

Fire damaged cars

They also attended the burst water main that affected the Broughton Road in Banbury and their specialist equipment was used to limit the damage to a number of affected properties.

The crews have taken part in an annual Cricket match that has been running in the village for the last few years, in memory of one of their colleagues, who unfortunately was killed whilst out on his bicycle.

This month the station will be training for incidents involving Chemicals and Road traffic Collisions.

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.
