We all look stunned at Ukraine and see the suffer­ing. We too have faced the ques­tion of how we can support. We are in constant exchange with our contacts in Ukraine, espe­cially with the fire­fight­ers from the Cher­nobyl area. As the need for equip­ment for search and rescue of trapped people (USAR) will arise if fight­ing contin­ues in the cities, we would like to finance and collect appro­pri­ate equip­ment. We would be delighted if you would support us with your donation:

We also support the inter­na­tional organ­i­sa­tion “Fire­fight­ers Alliance” with drop-off points and tempo­rary stor­age for collected fire­fight­ing equip­ment, which is then brought to the Ukrain­ian border by Osteu­ropaHilfe e.V..

For this purpose, @fire is setting up several collec­tion centres: 

D-51503 Rösrath (NRW)
D-14797 Kloster-Lehnin (Bran­den­burg)
D-82291 Mammen­dorf (Bayern)
D-85540 Haar (Bayern)

Please regis­ter dona­tion deliv­er­ies by email at spenden-​ukraine@​at-​fire.​de. Please deliver prefer­ably palletised or in closed boxes with a list. 

We are partic­u­larly look­ing for emer­gency back­packs (equipped), spineboards, ther­mal blan­kets, power gener­a­tors, hydraulic rescue equip­ment, power cutters, power chain saws, light­ing equip­ment, knee and elbow pads, radi­a­tion protec­tion equip­ment and gas detec­tion equipment.
