Station update - June 2015

A group of firefigters in front of a building.

The crew at Woodstock took part in realistic scenario training at the Fire Service College and attended fire behaviour training at Trada in High Wycombe, utilising the attack boxes, which gave the crew the chance to demonstrate their ability to control and extinguish a fire in realistic conditions with temperatures rising to 700 degrees.

A group of fire fighters with breathing aparatus equipment .

The crew also took part in an area training exercise with 06 Kidlington and 09 Eynsham. This was a 40 room manor house in Woodstock, which tested the crews ability to search and rescue whilst wearing breathing apparatus.

Operationally the station have attended:

Fire fighters and appliances at Magdalen College school

The fire engine and the Incident Command Unit from Woodstcok attended theMagdalen College fire.
A lorry fire
One RTC with persons trapped
A roof fire at the Feathers hotel in Woodstock
Various alarm actuations.

On Saturday the crew were on hand to give fire safety advice and literature to the public during Woodstock’s annual carnival, whilst allowing the children to explore the fire engine. It was a good opportunity to undertake a recruitment campaign as well.
