The two technical carts donated by Hamburg firefighters are full of materials needed to set up a mobile hospital.

For the Hamburg fire brigade, this was no mission like any other. Christian Kossmer, head of operations, stresses that he is very concerned that the two equipment vehicles will not be able to travel. The vehicles were not designed to travel that far, ie 1,000 kilometers. Therefore, an experienced car mechanic was taken along. The first breakdown took place just before Berlin. “Suddenly there was smoke from the fire and a rope burning at the bottom of the brake,” Kossmer recalls. But fortunately, this disaster was quickly rectified and the journey can continue.

For Mark Prohl (right) and Christian Kossmer, it is really more important to help people than to be in public. They gladly made an exception for police journalists.

Along the way, a delegation of eight firefighters also experienced many impressions of the war. Markus Prohl explains that about 100 kilometers from the Ukrainian border, the first trucks with broken tanks arrived towards them. “You suddenly realize it’s not normal.” Kossmer, the head of operations, will not forget the conversation with the Ukrainian firefighter. A colleague from the war zone reported that many of his comrades had been shot while on duty. In Die Polizeireporter’s 16th podcast, firefighters talk to police journalists Kai Salander and Ingmar Schmidt about why Kosmer was not afraid of war, how the Hamburg fire brigade supports Ukraine and what impressions the war left.
