The charitable Family Rauch Foundation is supporting the Voluntary Fire Brigade of Börwang (FFW Börwang) with the purchase of a battery rescue kit, consisting of battery rescue scissors and battery spreader, worth over 17,000 euros. The private charitable foundation has been advocating for people who find themselves in an emergency through no fault of their own for many years.

Haldenwang/Börwang, April 2020. The FFW Börwang has been in operation for 121 years since its foundation in 1899. Fire extinguishing is undisputedly one of its oldest tasks. In addition, there are further important activities, such as protecting people through preventive measures, but also risky operations when it is necessary to save people in danger of life.

The latter sometimes requires two essential aspects. On the one hand, the experience of the rescue services and their full commitment, but also the right equipment. Having the right equipment at hand makes the work of the emergency services much easier. For this reason, the non-profit Family Rauch Foundation has decided to support the FFW Börwang with its donation. "The old rescue kit was no longer sufficient for certain vehicles, such as SUVs, and did not provide the necessary flexibility due to a lack of battery power," confirms Alexander Kolb, Commander at FFW Börwang. The donated rescue kit, consisting of battery rescue scissors and spreader, was an absolutely necessary acquisition for the FFW Börwang. "We are very pleased that the charitable Family Rauch foundation could place the urgently needed donation in the right place", said Anton Klotz, District Administrator and Chairman of the Foundation Board after the official handover of the donation in Börwang.
