Witney fire cadets take an active role in supporting Witney fire stations annual events and activities. They play a pivotal part in supporting fire station open days by giving demonstrations of the skills they have achieved in small training scenarios.

The fire cadets assist in Community Safety activities within Witney town centre and also help with collections and fund raising for charities.

Station update - July 2015

This month has seen the crews at Witney attend a number of incidents around the local area and beyond. They have also been busy ensuring that they were well practised in using the new Breathing Apparatus control procedures that have recently come in to force.

They are also preparing themselves for a number of training courses that are due to happen over the next month or so, in particular water training.

Recently we have seen two of our newer firefighters successfully pass the physically demanding Basic training course that we hold in Oxfordshire. The course is held over two weeks and involves a number of arduous activities that put them in difficult circumstances, for example in to fast flowing water, operating on fast roads and learning many of the different practises that we carry out in the fire service.

If you are interested or know anybody that would welcome the chance to become an On-Call firefighter please attend the Station on a Tuesday evening from 7pm to find out more.
