At the request of the district fire chief of the Potsdam-Mittelmark district, @fire supports the fire departments, the German Federal Armed Forces, THW and other aid organizations in fighting two large forest fires in Brandenburg with more than 40 emergency personnel, several vehicles and a helicopter.
Our task forces provide support in particular with situation reconnaissance and mapping of the operational area, as well as with expert advisors and task teams for firefighting.
Furthermore, in consultation with the incident command, emergency personnel from @fire set a controlled fire to prevent the fire from spreading to inhabited areas.
Already on Friday morning, due to the predicted weather situation and the extreme danger of forest fires in large parts of Germany, the home staff of @fire was activated and first mission preparations were made.
Many thanks also to the company JoLa-Rent for the good cooperation and support!
