    Default Traveling to Germany

    I am an Engineering Test Technician for an automotive supplier by day and a paid-per-call Firefighter/EMT the rest of the time. My "real" job is sending me to Germany on 3 month rotations for the next 18 months. Basically 3 months in Germany, 3 months in USA; repeat 4 times.

    Has anyone that has traveled to Germany had any contact with Firefighters over there? Was it a positive experience? I am thinking of taking a half-dozen or so t-shirts from my department with me to trade; its that something they are willing to do? Just trying to find ways to meet fellow Firefighters and kill some time while being away from the wife and in a country I have never before visited.

    Thanks!

    I know it's a long time off but try and plan it so you're there for Interschutz in June of 2010.

    By far the largest fire trade show in the world.

    Hey!

    If you want to make contact visit http://www.feuerwehr-forum.de (needs registration "registrieren", upper right corner. Start a new thread with "neues Thema (Thread) beginnen" in the left menue), this is Germany's biggest board for firefighters. As most of us speak some english this is the easiest way to get contact with german firefighters.
    Where exactly are you going to? Keep in mind that most german firefighters (approx. 98%) are volunteer with career FD only in major cities.

    If you need assistance, feel free to contact me.

    Best regards,
    Chris from Leipzig, Germany (this is where the BMW 1-series is assembled)
