Like sports clubs, fire brigades are also struggling with a decline in membership. For a place in the Hessian Rhön, the dissolution of their operations department now has far-reaching consequences.
District of Fulda – For four years now, the Tanner district of Theobaldshof (district of Fulda) has been heavily debated about the fire brigade. Since the departure of the military leader, neither a replacement nor new members could be found. Now the fire brigade has been dissolved, which, according to fuldaerzeitung.de *, has consequences for the residents.
“There were fewer and fewer active people and participation in courses and exercises has collapsed,” said Mayor Mario Dänner and city fire inspector Thomas Jörges, outlining the problem. “In the meantime there were two or three firefighters, in the end only one is left,” says the mayor, who informed the city council at the latest meeting: The Theobaldshof fire brigade has been dissolved. * fuldaerzeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
