Rescue, recover, first aid: When it comes to human lives, any and every tool is a help – but not all are equally suitable. Flooding, earthquakes, snow or mudslides, destroyed roads and extreme climatic conditions previously required specialised vehicles in order to be able to reach, and work at the respective incident sites.

“Creative Truck Manufacturing” made in Germany

For more than 20 years, CTM has been building individual specialist vehicles of all kinds for companies, authorities and civil and disaster protection organisations. The PIONEER is the result of many discussions with customers who want a true all-terrain vehicle for special requirements, and one that is able to overcome the limits of all previously available vehicle types.
The PIONIER is the ideal vehicle for use in disaster areas. It can bring rescue workers to the affected locations, ensure rapid first aid with the provision of medicines, drinking water, electricity and accommodation, help with salvage or rescue work and, with the appropriate modules, also support the reconstruction of infrastructure.

According to its original remit, the role of the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster
Assistance is to protect the population in a state of armed conflict. Today, however, we also deal with
every conceivable type of major national incident – from natural disasters and critical infrastructure failures through to accidents at technical facilities and terrorist attacks. Against this background, we have a large number of very specific tasks. On the practical side, these include alerting people to danger and managing resources and information in the case of a national disaster. However, we also develop strategies to protect critical infrastructures, and of course we need to plan our future training programmes and exercises. Equally, we try to raise awareness among the general public and help them prepare for such events. As you can see, our remit is very wide indeed, so the BBK is called upon to perform many roles. You have described the BBK as an ‘event-driven’ government authority.
Some of the jobs we do require 24/7 readiness, 365 days a year. At our Joint Information and Situa-tion Centre (GMLZ), for example, we have to be prepared for both national and international de-ployments at a moment’s notice. We support our partners in Germany and abroad, and we can issue warnings at any time of day or night. To make this possible, BBK personnel are always on hand to sound the alarm immediately in the event of an emergency. Another key role is to assist German
citizens who get caught up in disasters outside the country. One of the ways we do this is by provid-ing psychosocial support. We see ourselves as the first port of call in all matters related to civil pro-tection, so our job is to support the entire national civil protection system.

Across the world, the structure of the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (Technisches Hilfswerk – THW) is unique: THW belongs to the department of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community. However, about 99 percent of the THW-members work on a voluntary basis for THW. Only one percent of the staff works full-time for the authority.

Nationwide more than 80,000 volunteers commit themselves during their leisure time in 668 local sections in order to provide professional help to people in distress.

As an emergency organisation, THW can adapt to different disaster situations and scenarios. Modern equipment and well-trained specialists form the basis for its operative efficiency. This makes THW a reliable partner to fire brigades, the police and other aid organisations – in Germany, Europe and world wide. Over the past six decades THW has been active in more than 130 countries, providing technical relief and support in the aftermath of disasters and to humanitarian aid projects.

topocare deals with solutions for intelligent flood control.

An intelligent flood protection is comprehensive. By means of structural measures permanent solutions are integrated. Drainage systems, levees and dikes are an important part of the flood protection system.

These measures are supplemented by temporary, mobile systems. In this case mobile walls, tube systems or classical sandbag barriers measures would be integrated, which may be part of the overall solution to form a flood protection concept.

Through consistent simulation and advanced planning in conjunction with the times and coordination capacities for deployment plans etc. the assessment of the available measures can be made both both secure and cost-effective. Regard should also be taken of the existing transport and logistic concept and where possible fully integrated into the new system.
