The fight against the corona pandemic has continued over the weekend. This time the focus was on the fire departments.
Erding - The municipality of Pastetten had to resort to an unusual measure on Saturday. The weirs Pastetten and Reithofen-Harthofen are known to be housed in a guard. Because there are the first very isolated suspected corona cases in the ranks of the fire protection officers, district fire councilor Willi Vogl asked to separate the two units as a precaution. Mayor Cornelia Vogelfänger reports this in an interview with our newspaper. A solution was quickly found. The emergency services from Reithofen-Harthofen moved into parts of a hall of a Harthofen landscaping company. "It is very tight in our tool shed, some of the operational clothing hangs one above the other. In Corona times in particular, this is an unfortunate condition, ”says Vogelfänger. The new regulation applies until the disaster is lifted.
1800 liters of surface disinfectant were produced on Saturday. Vogl reports: “We had read in the Erdinger Anzeiger that city pharmacist Armin Braun was able to do this. We asked him for support and he immediately agreed. ”The solution was mixed in large barrels and then filled into ten-liter canisters. "This is now going to homes, clinics and doctor's offices," says Vogl. He also reports that the fire department has reactivated a decommissioned schnapps distillery - to burn alcohol for disinfectants.
In spite of the first suspected cases, Vogl emphasizes: “The operational readiness is ensured throughout the district. There is no need to worry. ”Ham
