Every day, the Federal Agency for Technical Relief is active in Germany and across the world. Altogether, the voluntary experts commit more than one million hours per year to civil protection. On the following pages, you can find information about the activities of THW.
The EU-project RECONASS wants to develop a system, which aims at identifying possible building defects after disasters. As a project partner, THW is involved in the undertaking. At the launch of the project, the participating organisations met in Athens at the weekend.
For weeks, snow and ice had a firm grip on Slovenia. Though the snow has melted, the population is still fighting against its impact. For two weeks, THW-volunteers have ensured the power supply in the region around Postojna.
THW provides another five emergency power supply units (NEA) for Slovenia. Volunteers will take the units, which have a performance of between 200 to 500 kVA, to Logatec in Slovenia and will then connect them to the Slovenian network. The operations will be supported by those THW-experts who have already been deployed in the area.
As a partner in civil protection in Germany, THW assists people after catastrophes and accidents. The Federal Agency performs its legal mission not only in Germany but also during operations across the world in more than 100 countries now.
