Hello, I'm Marvin,
I am a volunteer firefighter in Lower Saxony, Germany. In my county not much money goes into the equipment of the volunteer fire departments. So our equipment is pretty old. For example our vehicles were built in the late 70s. We get old Jackets and helmets that aren't even supposed to be used anymore. And if we want up to date equipment we have to buy it ourselves. That is the reason I started this crowdfunding campaign. The money donated here will be used for new personal gear for me, and money that maybe is left after that goes into modernisation of the rest of the department.
A short summary of the gear I need:
A new helmet, some helmet gear (Flashlight, neck protection), 2 pairs of new gloves (one for fire and one for mvas and stuff), a new jacket, new pants, an additional back sign for the new jacket. All together they are about 1000€.
If you want to see my old gear just hmu you will be shocked...
