Welcome Statement: DFV e.V.

An Open Ear for Emergency Responders


Whether train accident, traffic accident or fire: fire fighters are often deployed to operations in which fatalities have to be mourned. Of course, incidents like the collision of two trains in the Bavarian town of Bad Aibling in February of this year stand out - but also in everyday work, the men and women of the fire services are confronted with exceptional psychological stress situations. In order to offer help to those who help others, the Psychosocial Emergency Care Service has an open ear for the concerns and needs of the rescuers.


The foundation "Help for Helpers" of the German Fire Services Association (DFV) supports fire-fighters in dealing with particularly burdensome work experiences. From May 11 to 13, 2016, the foundation informs of possible causes of stress, consequences and stress management at its own stand. The new brochure "Psychosocial Challenges in the Fire Service" is an essential help, in which the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Management (BBK) in cooperation with the German Fire Services Association outline risks and provide practical tips, according to the motto "Reducing Burdens – Strengthening Protection". Further help in stress management complements the offer.


Parallel to the fair for rescue and mobility, the 3rd symposium of the foundation "Help for Helpers" takes place in Fulda. Here the challenges of refugee welfare work are the focus - like the psychological emergency care in the intercultural context. The event takes place on Thursday, May 12th 2016, from 10:30 until 16:30. We are looking forward to your visit!
