"Honoring god, defending others" is the motto of all fire departments. The members of the dittersbrunn-straublingshof volunteer fire department proved that this is no empty phrase. Not only is the small but very fine local fire department located below the ansberg very well positioned and very well trained: the floriansjunger also handed over a large donation for the upkeep of their pretty house church, the saint vitus chapel, in the midst of the largest closed linden wreath in europe.
In his annual report, commander stefan batz made it clear that the small fire department is much more than "just" a fire brigade a firefighting force. In fact, it became clear that the association is an important cultural support in the two towns. The winter barbecue, for example, to which the singing public is invited and which is hosted by a different family each year, is a great social event every time. The fire department also organizes the johannisfeuer on the veitsberg summit and sets up a maypole. Every year, the defense department also participates in the carnival parades through the kellbachgrund and in ebensfeld. A social highlight is the
family outing organized by franziska lochmann.
