Bad Tölz - Bavaria's Minister of the Interior, Joachim Herrmann, gives the green light for the expansion of the Center for Security and Education (ZSA), the training and simulation center for air and mountain rescue on the Tölzer Flinthöhe.
According to the will of the Council of Ministers, the ZSA Mountain Rescue Centre in Bad Tölz is to be expanded into a "Bavarian Centre for Alpine Safety". "The existing mountain rescue center already has a unique selling point throughout Europe as a training center for the rescue service," emphasizes Herrmann. With the planned construction project, it is now to grow into a "Centre for Alpine Safety". The total costs of around 18.9 million euros, up to 15 million euros are to be subsidized by the state.

As Herrmann further reports, the focus of the construction of the new building will be on new training and functional rooms for theoretical training as well as operational preparation and follow-up. "The aim is to expand and permanently secure the range of education and training opportunities for air and mountain rescue, emergency medicine and operations management." The same applies to digitization there. In order to ensure that voluntary performance in mountain rescue continues to be ensured at a high level, it is important "to set up the Bavarian flagship centre even more professionally in the future".
