Feuerwehr

fire station

I actually saw the "Feuerwehr" (fire-fighters) in action two days ago, when three of those big fire trucks were parked outside a house near where I live, with firemen all over the place. I later found out that it had been a false alarm; someone fell asleep with the oven on and called them when he awoke to the kitchen filled with smoke. In the end, all the 21(!) deployed firemen had to do was turn off the oven and open a few windows. Better safe than sorry, I guees.
