Station update - September 2015

This month has again been a busy one for the fire station and the fire crew that work here. The crew have been hard at work attending and training for the various types of incidents that they attend, including taking part in an exercise at Banbury on 8 September, which was designed to test crew’s skills at dealing with road traffic collisions.

Firefighters surrounding a car

The exercise included pumps from Banbury, Hook Norton and Bicester that involved several cars in collisions with a motorcycle, a house and pedestrians.

The exercise was a great success; crews dealt with the scenarios very effectively demonstrating their knowledge and putting into practice their skills in RTC management.

October is tyre safety month and the big drive is to ensure that you have safe and legal tyres on your vehicles as we move into the colder months where the move to wetter and colder weather can have a significant impact on road conditions.

Look out for fire crews and a qualified tyre fitter at ALDI Banbury on Monday 12 October, who will be there giving out advice and free checks on your tyres to ensure you are ready, safe and legal as you drive through the winter months.

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.

Top tips to keep you safe and warm this winter.
