In The Berlin Fire Department

We have already shown you the Museum of Fire Protection in Berlin, today it's turn of a fire department. This department wasn't randomly chosen, it was a special day when here was held an Open Doors Day. The firemen of so-called Siemens-stadt (near Spandau) arranged a real holiday for kids and adults.

The Berlin fire fighting service was founded in 1851. More than 4 thousand people and 900 vehicles struggle to rescue people in fires.

The expert is telling about various fire rescue vehicles, technical equipment even making people laugh...

It's amazing how carefully everything has been fixed.

They are painted or pasted over with a special dayglo red color (German: Leuchtrot, RAL 3024).
