Station update - September 2015

At the beginning of September the crew from Wantage met members of the community and provided them with information and advice for Chimney Fire Safety Week, which ran from the 7 to the 13 September. This was part of the national Fire Kills campaign.

On Tuesday the 27 October from 9am the crew from Wantage will be in Sainsburys car park with members of the road safety team to provide advice on tyre safety, also as part of a national campaign. They will also be providing additional advice on the dangers of drink driving and fire safety in the home, with particular onus the festive period which will soon be on us again.

Please feel free to come and meet us, talk to the crew and have a look around the fire engine. 

What’s the key to a
great night out?

This December if you are out and about partying or visiting family and friends leave your car keys at home, don’t drink and drive, book a taxi, catch a bus, walk or have a designated driver.

The effects of alcohol can still last into the morning after a drinking session. If you’re driving to work or dropping the kids at school the next morning, don’t get caught out, you could still be over the drink drive limit, even if you feel fine.

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.
