Recruitment

Wantage fire station has successfully campaigned to recruit more On Call fire fighters. In the last six months we have had two new fire fighters join the crew, we have two who are about to start their basic training and two who have started the selection process.

With these new crew members Wantage now has the required number of fire fighters. However we are still encouraging members of the community who think they may be able to help to come forward so that we can discuss the possibility of them joining.

Incidents

Over the winter we have attended numerous chimney fires and Oxfordshire Fire and Rescues Service continues to recommend that residence regularly have their chimneys swept.

Look forward

The 365 alive web site is offering fire safety advice for Valentine’s day.

In March the crew at Wantage will be offering a car washing service at the Fire Station in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity. The date for this event will be released soon.

Take care whilst in the kitchen

Pans on a cooker

More than 50% of accidental fires at home are started by cooking. Hazards including naked flames and people becoming distracted all contributing to making the room the least safe in the home.

Many kitchen fires happen when people are not paying attention or leave things unattended. Take a look at our top tips to help you stay safe in the kitchen.

Complete a home fire risk check

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging residents to make sure they are fully aware of the fire hazards which commonly exist throughout the home, how to identify them and what to do should a fire occur, by completing a quick online home fire risk check.
