Alexander fehn is the new chairman of the windheim volunteer fire department. He replaced klaus volk, who did not run again for personal reasons.
Volk had reported at the beginning about the activities in the past year. Among other things, he mentioned the holding of st. Florian’s day and the renovation and reconstruction work on the fire station. Volk looked back to 2016, when he had taken over the chairmanship of the association. At that time, the most important task was to get a functioning active fire brigade off the ground. This is the result of many individual discussions and ultimately the merit of all active firefighters and a leadership team that performs outstanding volunteer work.
Commander dominik loffler first informed that the active fire brigade currently consists of 26 persons, among them four women. The fire brigade has four group leaders and five machinists. A total of 17 operations were carried out and ten safety watches were held. In a total of six cases, technical assistance was required, namely for the removal of several trees on the roads to kehlbach and hirschfeld, for the illumination of the sports field due to a helicopter landing, for the removal of a fire that had broken out in the dr.-the fire brigade had to deal with a branch falling onto the road and a car, and with a branch lying on the power line in the main road.
The 18 training sessions were attended by an average of nine members. The long training evening, which lasted over six hours, was particularly noteworthy. Jochen dietrich has the apprenticeship "geratewart" and "leader of a fire brigade successfully completed. Socializing was cultivated with a hike and a community evening.
With regard to the new protective clothing, the commander informed that the procurement should be completed by mid-2021.
