Within the Framework of the federal program »Democracy Lives! " of the German Federal Ministry for family, seniors, Women and Youth, the German Firefighters Association (DFV) is engaged until the end of 2019 in diversifying the fire departments.
"We want to continue the intercultural opening and push ahead to make the humans approach in the fire departments even more diverse", explained the DFV President about the framework of the event in Berlin.
The idea is that the German fire brigades have their strength in diversity. It is therefore important that the fire brigades are dealing with discrimination, and they get help doing so within the frame work of the project Human Fire Brigades . (Projekt MENSCH Feuerwehr.)
20 Experts from fire brigade associations, organizations and cooperation partners of the project were engaged at the start of the project.
