Kidlington Fire Cadets

The cadet unit at Kidlington fire station has been running since 1998 and meets on a Monday evening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm term time only.

In addition to the Kidlington Fire Cadet training nights, they also hold fundraising events with proceeds helping the Kidlington Unit and local charities, as well as The Fire Fighters Charity.

The promotion of Community Safety is high on the agenda for Kidlington Fire Cadets. The Kidlington Unit recently assisted Kidlington fire station crews with promoting Community Safety at a local Fire Fit event at Gosford Leisure Centre.

Station update - April 2016

The Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) water safety week ran from April 25 to May 1. The primary message throughout this week was to inform people of the dangers of being around water. 44% of drowning victims had no intention of entering the water.

The specialist water rescue team are based in Kidlington and as such they attend many water rescues both throughout the county and on occasions over the county boarder to assist our colleagues. The fire fighters are trained to swim and manoeuvre in fast moving water as well as operating Oxfordshire’s rescue boat.

Recently the crews have been called to rescues on the river Thames involving people that have got into trouble with the fast moving water while the Thames was in flood. The crews also have had to safely control boats that had become loose from their moorings and were swept downstream. The boat crew can also assist other fire fighters in extinguishing fires on residential and other boats/barges. They ensure that fire crews working near the water are able to carry out their operations in a safe and effective manner.
