DDR Feuerwehren

 In the GDR  there were 3 categories of the fire-brigade
A) the Professional  fire-brigade
b) the obligation fire-brigade
C) the freiwillige fire-brigade

In the GDR the occupation fire-brigade was assigned in contrast to other countries not to the army or the municipality, but the Ministry of the interior  (MDI).

Freiwillige fire-brigade and obligation fire-brigade were however subordinated to the town councillors, urban districts, municipalities or production managements. Their statutes of the local and operational fire protection organs entered into force to 14.1.1959. 1
