Civil protection; complementary equipment and training

The units and facilities involved in civil protection also perform the tasks of protecting the population against the special dangers and damage that threaten in the event of defence. They are additionally equipped and trained for this purpose.


The Federal Government supplements the equipment of disaster control in the areas of fire protection, NBC protection, medical services and support.

The supplementary equipment is provided by the Federation. The Länder distribute the equipment among the authorities responsible for civil protection. The latter can pass on the equipment to the responsible bodies of the units and facilities.

The supplementary equipment provided by the Federation to the Länder for civil defence is additionally available to the Länder for tasks in the field of disaster control.

Helpers in civil protection units and facilities who are intended for use in the above-mentioned tasks receive supplementary civil protection training for the performance of the tasks during their training.

Further information from your district administrative authority can be found, if necessary, on the website of your district administrative authority.
