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

Tyre safety awareness day

Several people looking at tyres

During the tyre safety event we had the opportunity to speak to over 60 people.

Approximately 200 vehicles were leafleted in the centre of Thame.

Dangers of under inflated and damaged tyres

Correct tyre pressures are essential for safety on the road with motorists more likely to suffer a dangerous blowout or braking problems with deflated tyres.

The benefits of correct tyre pressure include better fuel efficiency and smoother handling of the vehicle.

With the recent severity of weather, there is also the prospect of many cars having tyres with cracks in a zigzag formation appearing on them. This can also bring on the effect of rapid air loss in tyres and blowouts.

You can find out more about road safety on the 365alive website.
