Fire departments; information about the duties of the counties.

The counties procure the supra-locally required vehicles, equipment and facilities or provide grants for them.


Within the limits of their capacity, the districts must procure and maintain the vehicles, equipment and facilities required for the operation of the municipal fire departments on a supra-local basis or grant subsidies for this purpose. They can also provide basic and advanced training for firefighters (Art. 2 BayFwG).

The state also promotes fire protection and technical assistance services by granting earmarked subsidies to municipalities and districts and by maintaining state firefighting schools.
