The fire station of the Puchheim-Ort volunteer fire brigade is getting on in years. It does not meet the requirements of a modern weir. For this reason, it is to be expanded and partially renovated from next year.
Puchheim-Ort – Too few parking spaces and space, no changing rooms and reasonable showers, outdated IT, pipes from 1984 – the list of shortcomings could be continued. Listening to Commander Daniel Wanner, you can get an idea of the problems his troops are grappling with. But that's about to come to an end.
The Puchheim-Ort weir can soon look forward to an extension and partial renovation of the existing building. Almost three years ago, the fire brigade approached the mayor for the first time in this regard. In the meantime, the building permit has been submitted to the district office. According to the city administration, tenders are expected to begin in the spring. It is scheduled to start as early as October 2024. "You can praise the city of Puchheim, they recognized the need and really stepped on the gas," says Wanner.
Ventilation needs to be renewed
The project is planned to cost just over 3.7 million euros. To achieve this, a lot is to be tackled right away. For example, a new ventilation system is needed in the existing building. According to Roland Schützeneder, head of the technical building department, the old one is inadequate. The same applies to the electrical systems. According to Wanner, these are "dilapidated and through". At the same time, the sanitary installations will be renewed. "Otherwise, you'll have to tear everything open again in five years," the commander explains. IT, radio and control technology are also outdated and should have been outdated for a long time.
Cultivation is carried out at the back
Because space is also becoming scarce, an extension is being added to the rear. This allows the toilet and shower areas to be enlarged. A changing room is also needed. So far, the firefighters have been changing clothes right next to the vehicles, which, according to Commander Wanner, is a problem in terms of safety.
Operations center with PC and paper pad
The meeting and training room will also be enlarged. This was planned in a time with four exercises a year. There are now 60 to 70. In addition, more space is needed as a course location for the district, explains Wanner. In addition, the fire brigade will have a chef's kitchen, and the tenants will have a separate entrance. Finally, the office of the operations control will also be enlarged and modernized. Long overdue, the equipment still consists of "a computer and a pad of paper", according to Wanner, a shirt-sleeved emergency solution.
For locations where many operations overlap, such as during heavy snowfall or flooding, "you need at least three computer workstations and a situation map."
One more truck parking space in the hall
The vehicle hall will be expanded to include a truck parking space. In this way, an already existing small workshop can be used without having to repark a vehicle beforehand.

Order when moving in and out
The outdoor area will be reorganized. The car parking spaces will be arranged in such a way that one-way traffic is possible and firefighters moving in and out can no longer get into the enclosure. The access road will also be separated from that of the adjacent recycling centre.
According to Wanner, the construction work will be completed in stages in order to be able to continue to use the house. For some construction phases, operations will have to be stopped for one to two weeks. This will then be discussed with the surrounding fire departments, which will step in for as long as possible.
