2nd Transnational meeting

The second transnational meeting of the FireVall project took place on 21st and 22nd of March 2018 in Zagreb, Croatia.

After a warm welcome by the mascot of the Zagreb Firefighting Association we discussed strategies from the different countries of the FireVall project how to recruit new members. Some brigades count on the work with children and their fascination to become fire fighters. In other countries volunteer fire fighters get benefits for being a volunteer. This can also help in retaining members. You will be able to read more about the different strategies soon on this website.

We also visited different volunteer fire brigades and watched the training of children and youth brigades. Many thanks to our Croatian partners for hosting us and organizing such a great meeting!

Kick-off meeting

We were very happy to welcome all project partners for our first project meeting on 23rd and 24th of November 2017 in Kabelsketal, Germany.

During the meeting, the partners gave each other an overview about volunteer fire brigades in their country. Since there are a lot of differences regarding how many volunteers are involved, what they are allowed to do and who can become a volunteer, we got into very interesting discussions and exchanged our experiences.

In order to get a more practical view on volunteer fire brigades in Germany we visited the volunteer fire brigades in Osmünde and Zwintschöna. Besides, the kick-off meeting also served to clarify management issues as well as dissemination activities and the evaluation.
