Ingo, service technician and training expert

Ingo Freiwillige Feuerwehr

"Passion for fire protection" is our series in which we introduce employees who live fire protection both professionally and privately. Today we are introducing Ingo. Ingo is one of the front runners in volunteer work; he has been working in the volunteer fire department for over 4️⃣ 0️⃣ years. He started at CWS Fire Safety in Bremen in 2️⃣ 0️⃣ 1️⃣ 0️⃣.

"My path to the volunteer fire department came about because there is a volunteer fire department base where I live. I am an instructor there for the basic troop and respiratory protection course as well as an equipment manager for respiratory protection." Ingo tells us.

Career and tasks

"I trained as an electrician and worked in a company fire brigade until I moved to CWS Fire Safety (then Dieker Brandschutz) 1️⃣ 4️⃣ years ago. I train our fire safety assistants in theory and practice and regularly offer fire safety training. I also carry out fire extinguisher maintenance."

Volunteering and job

"I am a trainer in both areas and have a lot of experience in dealing with people. I know how to convey the 🗨️ topics to the participants in a practical way. I was also able to take part in the open 🧑‍🚒 day of the fire brigades with the CWS Fire Safety training vehicle. There I offered 🔥 fire-fighting exercises so that people would lose their fear of using a 🧯 fire extinguisher."

"Volunteering is important, whether in the volunteer fire department or something else, but if you can combine volunteering and a job, it's especially good 🫶 I've gained so much experience and the cohesion is good, which has an impact on both the volunteering and the job."
