Station update - December 2015

This month has been a busy one for Rewley Road fire station and the five fire crews that work here, the crews have been hard at work training for the various types of incidents that they could attend.

Managers and firefighter’s at the station have also been hard at work ensuring that their knowledge and understanding of the latest procedures for incidents involving rescues from machinery, major incidents, rescues from sewers, confined space incidents and incidents in heritage buildings are understood.

Road traffic collision exercise

On Tuesday 8 December 2015, Blue Watch from Rewley Road Fire Station organised and run a training exercise for Woodstock, Kidlington and Rewley Road Station staff.

This was an excellent opportunity for crews to work together and practice rescuing casualties from a simulated collision using hydraulic rescue equipment. The exercise lasted approximately two hours and during that time five casualties were rescued from four vehicles. 

Winter roads

Winter can be a challenging time of year when out and about on foot, on a cycle or motorbike and even in a car.

Road surfaces during the winter can be often covered by frost, ice and sometimes even snow. In foggy or wet weather visibility can be reduced. All of these factors can make winter roads particularly hazardous.

Winter driving can be more stressful on cars and drivers a like, with heavy rain, snow and ice making each journey more difficult and potentially dangerous to you and other road users.

Working smoke alarm?

smoke alarm

Will you hear your smoke alarm beep if you’re asleep? When was the last time you checked your smoke alarm?

• You should have at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home.
• Testing your smoke alarms weekly to make sure they work.

If you don’t have a working smoke alarm you are four times more likely to die in a fire at home.

Working smoke alarms are the best and easiest way to alert you to the danger of fire, giving you and your family precious time to escape.
