Only a few days after the forest fires in Beelitz and Treuen­bri­et­zen, 30 @fire person­nel and their vehi­cles supported the fire depart­ments in Bad Lieben­werda in fight­ing a forest fire at the request of the Elbe-Elster district command. 

Since yester­day evening, we have been advis­ing the inci­dent command with special­ist advi­sors, assist­ing in the recon­nais­sance of the situ­a­tion and carry­ing out post-fire oper­a­tions together with the fire depart­ments, the forest fire team and the special­ized forces Vege­ta­tion Fire Zehdenick.

More than 800 hectares of forest have been burn­ing at times since Thurs­day on the border between Bran­den­burg and Saxony. Currently, more than 250 fire­fight­ers are still engaged in fire­fight­ing operations. 

A few days earlier, @fire was deployed at the request of the district fire chief of the Pots­dam-Mittel­mark district with more than 40 emer­gency person­nel, several vehi­cles and a heli­copter to support the fire depart­ments, German Federal Armed Forces, THW and other aid orga­ni­za­tions in fight­ing two major forest fires in Brandenburg. 

Many thanks to the forest fire team and the special­ized forces vege­ta­tion fire Zehdenick for the good coop­er­a­tion as well as the company JoLa-Rent for the support during all three forest fires.
