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 - March 2015

March has been another busy month for Witney Fire Station; the crews have attended a number of incidents across the local area and supported a number of larger incidents across Oxfordshire.

Also they have been hard training this month and have taken part in an area exercise at Witney Town FC, making themselves familiar with the new Breathing Apparatus guidance, supporting South Central Ambulance and Brooks University Paramedic Students in Road Traffic Collision (RTC) training and are due to attend the Fire Service College for some realistic training.

The Station also attended a number of homes in the area and given home fire safety advice.

This month has also seen another member of the local community become an On-call firefighter and will start their basic training in April.

If you are interested in becoming an On-call firefighter feel free to call in to the station to find out more.

Dusting of your motorbike?

If you are dusting off your bike and planning on blowing away the winter cobwebs, give your bike a Think! health check before you set off.

As the days are getting warmer and the evenings lighter more motorcyclists will be on our roads. Both motorcyclists and drivers can help make motorcycling safer.
