Update on fire fighter recruitment

Two fire fighters and a fire appliance

Wallingford fire station has been recruiting more On Call Retained fire fighters over the past year to further improve the fire cover the station provides.

The station in Station Road, is staffed entirely by On Call Retained fire fighters who have main jobs during the day but are on call and can be summoned to attend emergencies both during the day if they work in the local area or night-time if they live nearby.

In the last two years four new fire fighters have joined the team and are settling in well to station life and been part of the On Call crew.

Crews will continue to visit the businesses in the local area  to see if workers are interested in becoming a fire fighter.

Wallingford fire station is looking for one or two more crew that could provide cover during the day as the current shortage means staff have had to work extra shifts and be on call more to fill gaps in the service.

To find out more about becoming a On Call firefighter telephone Terry Coupar on 07795 315975.

Station update - July 2016

On Tuesday 5 July June at midday we were called to a fire in some storage buildings at the rear of the Cau restaurant in Henley.

Firefighters from Henley Fire Station worked alongside their Thames Valley Colleagues in extremely arduous conditions with temperatures recorded over 1300 degrees centigrade at ceiling height. Wearing Breathing Apparatus and equipped with thermal imaging cameras and high pressure water jets firefighters fought through the intense heat to attack the fire and prevent it from spreading to adjacent buildings.

Incident Commander, Station Manager Marcus Reay said: “Fortunately our speed and weight of response meant we were able to attack the fire without delay and prevent it from spreading to adjacent buildings.  The manner in which fire crews from across the Thames Valley worked in partnership is testament to our joint procedures and training, and I am glad to report that despite the very hot conditions at this fire, no injuries were sustained.

The fire is believed to have started or next to the bins before spreading to the buildings – however the fire was not treated as suspicious.
