Station update - November 2015

During October the crews have continued to train on the new equipment that is due to arrive shortly, in particular the new type of road traffic collision equipment.

This new equipment has been designed to be more flexible for use in more difficult and compact areas and no longer needs hydraulic pumps or hoses. This is an excellent addition to the fire appliances and will benefit anyone who is unfortunate enough to require the Fire & Rescue service.

The crews at Eynsham, Witney, Burford and Bampton have had the use of some nearly completed houses to practise the Breathing Apparatus procedures and as you would expect the crews were proficient in the procedures and are trained and ready for anyone unfortunate to need our skills.

The crews from Witney have also worked with the Abingdon and Witney College and delivered to students who are on their Emergency Services college course. They also took the opportunity to sow the seed for future fire andr escue personnel.
