In action the most important thing for firemen is that they are well trained and well equipped. The company of Weber Hydraulik GmbH and its partners – one of which is the LHD Group Deutschland GmbH with its Lion brand for personal protection equipment – is particularly involved in this field.

Here relief units can practice in the use of hydraulic rescue equipment from Weber in different stations using hydraulic cutters and pumps and, for example, rescue people from cars, trucks or buses.

At the event, which is being held this year in Bad Kreuznach, both participants and members of the press also have the opportunity to wear protective clothing from LION while taking part in the exercises. For this purpose, LION is making 50 V-Force® protective suits available on loan. 

This outer clothing excels, in addition to the high level of protection, as a result its special wearing comfort. The special raglan cut affords the wearer the greatest possible degree of freedom of movement. The participants are thus perfectly protected for the different tasks involved and simultaneously are given the opportunity of personally testing the functionality, the protection and the wearing comfort of the LION apparel during the exercise.
