Fire protection

In Lower Saxony, the competent authority is responsible for fire protection and assistance in its territory. In particular, it must set up, equip, maintain and deploy, among other things, an efficient fire brigade corresponding to local conditions. The members of the volunteer fire brigades carry out their duties on a voluntary basis.

The members of the volunteer fire brigades have a legal right to loss of earnings and in part to the granting of an expense allowance in accordance with the municipal statutes.
