Station update - February 2015

This month has seen the crews attend a number of incidents throughout Eynsham and the county. They have been hard at work ensuring that they are prepared and ready for the new Thames Valley Control Service and Hazardous Materials incidents.

We also have some members of the station attending a fire station in Germany, where over the years the station has built excellent relationships with their colleagues through one of the crews Business and this has helped forge some excellent ideas and practices in both Germany and in Oxfordshire.

During March the crew are due to attend the Fire Service College for more realistic training involving real fire and they are delivering a road safety presentation to Bartholomew School.

Get spring off to a good start

A sleeping child surrounded by smoke from a fire.The clocks going forward on the 29 March signals the start of British summer time.

There is no better time to check your smoke alarms at the same time as setting your clocks.

It takes just a minute to maintain this small item, but a working smoke alarm could save you and your family’s lives:

• get into the Test it Tuesday routine and test your smoke alarm once a week by pressing the test button until the alarm sounds.

• twice a year open the case and gently vacuum the inside to remove dust from the sensor. If it doesn't open, vacuum through the holes.

• if the alarm ever starts to 'beep' regularly, replace the battery as soon as possible.

It’s also a perfect opportunity to test the smoke alarm for older relatives, friends or neighbours who might find it hard to reach their alarms.

Complete a home fire risk check

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging residents to make sure they are fully aware of the fire hazards which commonly exist throughout the home, how to identify them and what to do should a fire occur, by completing a quick online home fire risk check.
