Remember 9/11 - Last Alarm 2018 

In memory of the victims of the terrorist raids in the United States of America.

Our memory particularly is for the 343 members of the FDNY and their families

Last alarm 2018
At the same time we commemorate the firefighters all over the world who was killed in action.

Thanks and appreciation for their contributions!  

Join in - the volunteer fire departments need you! 

Only in German language

Nice image film of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia to work in the fire department.
But also the volunteer fire departments in your area need you! 

04. May - Day of holy Florian - International Day of the Fire Department 

O holy Saint Florian with
pious sense we arrive.
Let your intercessor know us
in water shortage and fire hazards.
And when in the heart it ignites
the fire of heavy guilt and sin,
then extinguish the fire, help us
that God grant us his grace.
Is it one day to the last end,
make the heart burn in love
to the Father of Mercy,
who gives us eternal bliss.

(Song by Annette Thoma)

Florian von Lorch was commander-in-chief of a fire fighting unit in the late 3rd century.
With today's Florianstag we commemorate all fire brigade members who selflessly campaign for others.
Thank you for your time, your enthusiasm and your commitment "!

Der Feuerwehrhelm wishes you all Happy Easter! 


Der Feuerwehrhelm congratulates for the anniversary 


2018-02-11 European Day of the emergency call - 112  


We mourn for another firefighter 

We mourn the loss of a fire brigade comrade who died in Schleswig-Holstein during a mission.

Our compassion is for the family and the comrades. 

We mourn for three firefighters 

At operations during the storm Friederike three German firefighters were killed in the past week.

We mourn with the families and comrades. 

The collection Germany has been split 

For a better overview, the area Germany was divided into the sub-areas "German Reich", "Weimar Republic", "Third Reich" and Federal Republic of Germany ". The already existing part of the German Democratic Republic was included here.

Due to the paragraph § 86 StGB (Federal Republic of Germany) I would like to clarify some things:

On my website are various photographs of firefighter helmets or objects, which are provided with insignia of the 3rd Reich.
According to § 86 StGB, the swastika is a forbidden sign.
With the badges I show, I neither pursue the goal of propaganda for the right-wing scene, nor do I want to score by showing the characters.

That's why I explain:

The symbols shown here do not meet the criminal offense according to § 86 and 86a StGB.
It should be noted that the representation of the shown helmets of the 3rd Reich done in connection with the German fire department history.

Thus, the badges serve the teaching of current affairs.

They therefore comply with § 86 (3) and are therefore not a criminal offense.


Der Feuerwehrhelm says thank you! 

Thank you for over 240,000 visits in the past year 2017.
I'm happy about this large number because it shows me that I'm on the right track with my website.

You are welcome to come back again this year.
