Thw junior staff put to the test for three days

The youth of the kronach branch of the german federal agency for technical relief (THW) took part in a training and exercise weekend at the wartberg youth campsite near selb. A total of 15 children and young people from the district of kronach deepened what they had already learned and took on new challenges.
Locating and transporting injured persons, the correct installation of a suction and release line, lifting a container of old glass with the appropriate lifting power tools, and a high rescue in a quarry 15 meters deep – the THW’s hof regional office and the selb local association organized a jam-packed training and practice weekend for the THW’s junior staff at the wartberg youth campsite. A total of 60 children and young people from the THW local associations of kronach, kulmbach, pegnitz, marktredwitz and selb took part with 26 supervisors.
The kronach local association was represented by four female and eleven male young people aged between ten and 17, as well as a total of six supervisors, led by local youth representative dominik lauer, who was responsible for the organization from the kronach side.
The burial was immediately followed by the first task, which lasted well into the night: a walk by coordinates and with radio. This training was intended to help the young people overcome any insecurities they might have about using the radios.
The next day, the task was to rescue injured people at various stations under realistic conditions. "We have deliberately mixed the groups. The young people should get to know each other better and learn to work together. Teamwork and the security of being able to fully rely on each other in the field are very important in our work.", rudiger maetzig, head of the THW’s hof regional office, emphasized the importance of the job.
The third day included a final meeting and ended with the dismantling of the warehouse. For the young helpers of all local associations an unforgettable weekend came to an end.
