Station update - July 2016

Crews from Goring this month have been involved in many different incidents this month including several serious Road Traffic Collisions. Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue service  crews are well drilled in the use of hydraulic equipment to ensure we can rescue trapped people and provided first aid until Ambulance crews arrive on scene.

The Crew were also called out to the unusual incident of a man falling out of a tree in woodland near Woodcote. Not strange you may think however this was in the middle of the night! Crews were on hand to aid the Ambulance with lighting and to lift the casualty over a 1000 metres to the awaiting ambulance.

Goring fire station fire fighter recruitment campaign

Goring fire station has begun a campaign to recruit more On Call Retained firefighters.
During the past 2 years we have had several people go through the test and Emily our latest recruit is now a full member of the crew.

We currently have 2 more people interested however numbers at the station are now down to 9 but we need about 15 to function at its best.

The station in Icknield Road, is staffed entirely by On Call Retained firefighters who have main jobs during the day but are on call and can be summoned to attend emergencies both during the day – if they work in the local area or night-time if they live nearby.

Jonathan Holroyd  from the Goring crew said “Working as firefighter is fantastic experience. The crew at Goring fire station made me feel very welcome and part of the team. I always wanted to be a firefighter and help the local community to stay safe.

As a local I understand the importance of supporting Goring fire station, to ensure that the quickest response is given to those in need, during an emergency”.

To find out more about becoming a retained firefighter phone Marcus Reay on 07788 183050 or visit the station on Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm.
