“Passing on experience”

„Erfahrungen weitergeben“

When I joined THW 60 years ago, I would never have thought that I would stay with them for such a long time. However, the work here is so varied and exciting that it never becomes boring. In the course of my time at THW, I have participated in many operations, lastly during the flooding in the summer of 2013. The most beautiful aspect of my commitment to THW is that I am able to help people.

Today I still serve at the local section every week. Above all, I repair damaged equipment and tools but I also like to help out in the kitchen or to do the laundry. For me it is great fun to cooperate with younger comrades and to pass on my experience to them.
