Wächter, Magirus and the fire department of the year together in NY
Since more than a year, the Conrad Dietrich Magirus Award puts the exceptional achievements of the fire fighters in the focus of public attention. The temporary highlight of the contest was the visit to New York of the voluntary fire brigade of Detmold, germanys fire department of the year 2012. Part of the stay were the exchange of experiences with the fire departments of Brooklyn and Harlem, a guided tour at the fire fighters academy „The Rock“, a visit of the worlds most modern fireboat (the „Marine 343“) and the collective participation of the world famous NYC Saint Patrick's Day Parade. All perfectly organised by the Wächter & Wächter PR & Event agency. Firefighters throughout Germany followed the highlights of the trip on the Facebook site, which is designed and supervised by the Wächter & Wächter Interactive Agency, and on feuerwehrwelt.de, the online community for firefighters.
Wächter & Wächter plans and implements the contest on behalf of MAGIRUS.
The group of agencies developed the idea and formalities, the community and facebook site and supervise the yearly award from the nomination to the award ceremony. Having been a great success in 2012, the Conrad Dietrich Magirus Award will also include international nominations this year for the very first time.
