On-call firefighters from the Banbury Fire Station received two awards last night at the Chief Fire Officer Awards ceremony at Blenheim Palace. Some of the on-call firefighters from Banbury attended the awards ceremony where they received two awards, which included Oxfordshire’s Station of the year and On-Call Station of the year for 2020.

Community Safety Service employees were asked to nominate the fire station that they believed should be recognised for outstanding commitment to achieving excellent outcomes for local communities, and for making their fire station a place to be proud of – ‘a station at the heart of its local community’.

Three factors were taken into account when considering nominations, which included community safety activity, contribution to the local community and evidence of Oxfordshire County Council’s values.
