Firefighter vehicles

The fire and ambulance services office (Amt für Feuerwehr und Rettungsdienst) is responsible for local civil protection in the city of Bonn. This includes protecting the general public in tense situations or defence matters (civil defence) for which the government is responsible, as well as dealing with large-scale emergencies (peacetime civil protection) on behalf of the state.
