Station update - September 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 involving civil disturbances, thatched roof fires and working on single and multilane carriageways are understood.  

White Watch at Rewley Road Fire Station have had a very busy month with two events in particular, on the weekend of September 12 and 13 the station opened its doors as part of the Oxford Open Doors event. 

During the two day event approx. 800 members of the public visited the station and had a look around our appliances and equipment.

The technical rescue unit based at Kidlington fire station also attended the event and put on a Rescue demonstration from a simulated Road Traffic Collision, this kept our visitors quiet for a period of approx. 20 minutes whilst the Rescue crew used hydraulic equipment to free a trapped driver from the wreckage of a two vehicle impact.

On Tuesday 15 September, White watch organised a water rescue exercise in Wolvercote involving four appliances and the water rescue unit based at Kidlington fire station. The scenario involved the recovery of a number of persons marooned in flood water on the opposite bank of the river. 

Crew Manager Tom King from White watch Rewley Road was the Incident Commander for the exercise, he used a number of options to rescue/recover the marooned persons such as a shallow water wading and the 10 person rescue sled.

All persons were recovered successfully during the course of the exercise and the following photographs show some of the equipment available to the service to assist with this task.
