God’s blessing on vehicle and defense

Especially in the smaller towns in the district, the official commissioning and blessing of a new fire truck is not an everyday event. In friesen, the new portable fire engine replaces the more than 30 year old vorganger model, which is currently still stationed at the fire department in erlach. The blessing of the vehicle was celebrated with a parade of flags of the entire fire departments of hirschaid and the local associations of friesen, a festive church service and a cosy get-together.

Professor alfred hierold praised the achievements of the friesen fire department in his sermon and thanked everyone for their voluntary work for the good of the general public. The new vehicle is therefore "not a new toy", but rather an important contribution to public safety and order. He concluded by asking for god's blessing on the new portable fire engine.

Christian buttel, second in command of the fire department, reminded the audience of the importance of investing in modern technology, as it is "an investment in the future" were. However, they are purposeless and pointless, without the dedicated women, men and young people of the fire department.

District fire chief bernhard ziegmann spoke of the current forest fire risk and the need to have trained crews with the appropriate equipment on the ground. In this context, he praised in particular the small local fire departments with their diverse tasks.

Hirschaid's mayor klaus hohmann (CSU) thanked all who contributed to the realization of the new vehicle. From the application in june 2015 to the handover in july 2018 by the company compoint from forchheim, numerous meetings had to be held. The cost of the vehicle amounts to 73,000 euros. The demand by the government of upper franconia in the amount of 23,00 euros could be increased by ten percent, because an identical vehicle for the F gunzendorf was also put out to tender.

The musical framework of the event was provided by the friesener blaskapelle under the direction of michael saffer.
