We are looking for potential On Call firefighters

On Call firefighters are an essential part of the fire and rescue service. They serve both our urban and more especially our rural communities, responding to pagers when an emergency call is received.

On Call firefighters must live or work within a few minutes of the fire station.

If you live or work close to a station and are interested, or would just like to find out more, please come along to your local station, without obligation, on the evening of their drill night.

March station update

Rewley Road fire crews have again been very busy in February with heavy floods affecting Oxfordshire and many parts of Oxford. This is along with other emergency calls to property fires, road traffic collisions and special service incidents within the County Council area.

Oxfordshire county Council Fire and Rescue Service worked closely with other agencies to try and reduce the impact of localised flooding to Oxford, while fire crews were out giving advice, evacuating residents and assisting where possible to pump out properties and assist the vulnerable communities.

Crews worked 24 hours a day for over a week to remove and keep flood water at bay on Abingdon Road Oxford, having been successful in removing the flood water from Botley Road in Oxford.

An interesting rescue of a cat up a tree! - on the last day of March

Following a call from the RSPCA requesting assistance to rescue a cat that had been stuck up a tree for over 48 hours, Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service deployed our Hydraulic Platform (high reach) appliance to remove the small animal that was perched in a very precarious position several meters up.

As Oxford City Station, the crews of Rewley Road Fire Station are continually striving and working very hard to prevent, protect and respond to emergency calls to ensure our communities of Oxford and Oxfordshire can grow, live, travel and working in confidence.
