Horensia News

Recommended Posts

Things are looking up for the Kingdom of Horensia. With a balanced budget and economic prosperity, many citizens are now enjoying themselves for the first time in years.

 

In Arrasfield, the city's fire department will begin a recruitment week starting on Sunday with a demonstration by the city's firefighters. Arrasfield is unique in that even though paid firefighters do exist, the backbone of the fire service is composed of dedicated volunteers who provide these services for free of charge. Stop by one of the following fire companies and see what it's like to be a volunteer!

We respond to all working fires in the city to provide rehabilitation services.

Firefighters from Treptow HHLC4 donning air masks to fight a 1-alarm fire at Box 566 on 25.4.2015. Treptow is the last company in the city to wear the old three-quarter boots and long coats. Their paid firefighters wear city-issued bunker gear with pants.

Another image of the fire at Box 566. The man on the roof is Treptow's Assistant Chief, Leo Luxenberg, a 32-year veteran of the volunteer fire service. He also works as a paid firefighter stationed at Christiana Fire Company's airport fire station.

2 firefighters from Steglitz HC6 fight a fire at Box 2434 on 15.3.2015. Steglitz is located in a suburban area of the city that has only recently begun to see large-scale development. Thus, hydrants can be scarce at times, requiring that water tankers be brought in to supply water to the firefighters.

Treptow firefighters attempt a futile attack on a fully-involved wooden-frame structure at a 3-alarm fire at Box 517 on 23.2.2015. Treptow, Marzahn, and Union all responded to this fire in full force, which also destroyed a neighbouring building.
