For our English-speaking friends, here is some information about our volunteer fire brigade

Volunteer fire departments in Germany consist of volunteers from many different backgrounds and professions. These volunteer firefighters respond to emergency calls at short notice, providing essential emergency services such as extinguishing fires, pumping water out of flooded basements or securing and clearing roads after an accident. They perform any and all tasks related to the protection of human and animal life. Our volunteer fire service in Neuenhain comprises three different departments: In addition to our regular fire brigade, we also have a “mini fire brigade” for children (ages 6-10) and a youth fire brigade (ages 10-17).

Whether you are long-term resident of Neuenhain or have only just moved here – we are happy to tell you more about volunteering in the fire department or our mini and youth fire brigades! You can contact us by sending an e-mail to
