The fire station
For hygiene, there is a specially built washroom with an integrated shower, so that you can return home freshly showered even after hard, dirty work.
A small radio or signalling room is equipped with the latest technology with a PC, printer and important devices.
The social rooms range from a cozy room for the youth fire brigade to a lounge or training room with adjoining kitchen for friendly get-togethers.
A highlight is the small "museum", which is housed in the attic. There you will find some tools and clothing items from bygone times.
The fire brigade was founded in 1867 and is still an important part of the district today. Over the years, the department has become a well-known fire brigade and is also an important component of the overall fire brigade in the entire community.
With the foundation of the youth fire brigade in 1991, which is considered the most important concept for young people, which was founded by our honorary commander Manfred Stütz and also with the constant further development of the vehicle fleet and the technical aids, they are well prepared for the future.
Their spectrum of operations ranges from simple technical assistance, such as cleaning up a slick of oil, to small fires and difficult rescues with heavy equipment and fires, which require the support of the entire armed forces or other fire brigades.
In the youth fire brigade, 22 young people are very enthusiastic. (Status 12/2020)
