- Use of the turntable ladders: At the fall test in Geisingen, the sample was divided into two parts. Once in a Lschangriff and especially people rescue by means of the laying ladder, and on the other hand with an aerial ladder. It became clear which enormous time savings one has with an aerial ladder and which versatile application possibilities exist. But: This, of course, only applies if an aerial ladder is available on site and ready for use. Because in the case of fire in Geisingen, the turntable ladder from Tuttlingen or Trossingen is required. These are alerted even in the event of a fire alarm in the nursing home, but do not take off until the Geisinger fire brigade has explored the situation on site. Most alarms of the fire alarm system were previously false alarms.
- Feuerwehrbedarf plan: Geisingen has been procuring a turntable ladder for many years for Geisingen in the area of the southwestern district of Tuttlingen in the city of Geisingen's firefighting plan as well as in the concept of the district fire chief. Meanwhile, the ladders are also increasingly requested to support the Red Cross in corresponding patients from upper floors. Multi-storey residential buildings, but also commercial properties, demand ever more elaborate fire protection, especially in closely built historic areas with the corresponding buildings. If there is a building permit to be approved conversion, the builders receive immense editions, in terms of fire protection, and especially if no heighgebound vehicle, so an aerial ladder on site, is present. Until an aerial ladder from Tuttlingen or Trossingen in Geisingen is on site, pass by more than 15 minutes and more, in an emergency in Leipferdingen it can take about half an hour.
- demonstrations: A few days ago there were two turntable ladders from Ulm from the company Iveco (Margirus) in Geisingen. This week the company Rosenbauer from Karlsruhe was the guest at the conclusion of the performance tour in the Schwarzwald-Baar-Kreis in Geisingen. Also with two turntable ladders. At the demonstrations were next Wehrmnnern from Geisingen, Mayor Martin Numberger and some parishioners, and the commanders of the districts there. In addition to the practical demonstration of the handling of the ladder with Lschangriff and especially human rescue, it went in both cases with the vehicles in the Stdtle. The turntable ladders of the new generation are crammed with technology and can also be used in a very narrow space, which has become clear several times. Total Commander Karl Cech as well as his deputy Norbert Amma see a ladder in a quantum leap in terms of the security of the population concerns. It has also repeatedly emphasized the new county fire master Andreas Narr, as well as its predecessor Martin Hagen, who pointed out many years later.
- Procurement: A possible procurement is at the beginning. The two district fire chiefs of the district of Tuttlingen and the neighboring Schwarzwald-Baar district now have to bring the individual weirs under a helmet, better said hat. "A collective tender only makes sense if everyone wants to order the same vehicle," said Andreas Narr. Otherwise, according to Narr, that makes no sense, as the representatives of the companies Rosenbauer and Barth, Alexander Schubert and Philipp Gra, emphasized during the demonstration. The high investment costs of more than 600,000 euros could face some restrictions. Once a technical promotion of the country, in addition to this half of this subsidy from the district and depending on other investments of the city budget could still be applied for a compensation levy.
The Freiwillige Feuerwehr Geisingen has five departments. Geisingen, Kirchen-Hausen, Leipferdingen, Aulfingen and Gutmadingen. For many years, an aerial ladder for the southwestern part of the district has been listed in the fire service requirements plan. The next turntable ladders are stationed in Trossingen and Tuttlingen. When a procurement is pending, is still open, in the next year is probably the collective tender.
