The beginnings of the Löschigel

As volunteers, we are often faced with the following dilemma:

We all burn to help other people, but want to be able to return home healthy after the mission.

In 2019 alone, 2454 firefighters had an accident severe enough to qualify for a disability pension. Every single one counts. An operation in which a comrade, from whom we had learned something new the day before, became our own patient made the drama clear to us and showed us that things cannot go on like this.

The extinguishing hedgehog offers an easy and intuitive way to avoid entering dangerous areas.

Instead of a firefighter, the extinguishing hedgehog attached to a ladder can simply be pushed forward. The safety distance and thus the safety of the emergency services is significantly increased.

Now we are working on further innovations to strengthen aid organisations and make them safer.

Unser Ziel: Die schützen, die uns schützen!

The foundation for the development of the Löschigel was laid by participation in Jugend forscht. Hundreds of hours of work, four different prototypes, numerous tests and discussions bore fruit, was awarded by the Federal Minister of Labor, Hubertus Heil, with the Bundessieg bei Jugend forscht im Fachbereich Arbeitswelt geehrt!

"The best idea is of no use to anyone if it is not exploited." (Walter A. Heiby) true to the motto of the ideas competition, we designed a business model to go with the Löschigel to really give fire departments the support they deserve. Our business model was submitted several times to the Ideenwettbewerb Rheinland-Pfalz awarded. From the business model, we developed our solid business plan, which secured us 1st place in the StartUp Teens competition and has guided us safely through our business life and into the national finals of Jugend gründet since our founding in February.

Our Vision

We revolutionize the safety of BOS, more safety for emergency forces!

Public hazard prevention is rethought from the ground up at our company. Rescue and innovation. Nationally and internationally, we will establish new more sustainable and safer standards in hazard response.  Equip old proven teams with new, ergonomic and time-efficient solutions. We want to offer safety and support to all involved, from the patient himself, through alerting, to the end of the mission.

Protect those who protect us!

Our values

Cooperation at eye level,we develop our ideas together with the emergency services, every opinion and idea is taken into account. taken seriously and discussed. As active emergency forces ourselves, we know how versatile the operational scenarios are, so we also need versatile solutions. The Comradeship from our honorary offices characterises our togetherness, everyone can always rely on the Helpfulness of the team trust. Consideration and Verständnis in the event of private restrictions is just as much a part of this as a constructive error culture,mistakes have to be recognised and accepted; one stands by them and learns from them. We are constantly educating ourselves and are therefore at the forefront of technology. Living in the position, things usually turn out differently than expected, our Passion and Joy at work enable us to agile and to jointly develop safe, sustainable and innovative Quality products to develop.

Our partners

What cooperation is needed for is clear in aid organisations. We too work with friends and partners to maintain a high level of customer friendliness and satisfaction.
