Earlier this month, Verona Fire Department Company #1 gave a firehouse tour to a volunteer firefighter from Germany. Manuela Strasser is currently working as an au pair in Verona and is also a volunteer firefighter in Oberschweinbach, Germany.
Strasser and a friend were shown around Station 1, shown the equipment used here in Verona and also shown the apparatus. After the tour, in keeping with tradition, Strasser
presented the chiefs with a patch on behalf of her fire department in Germany and the Verona chiefs presented Manuela with a VFD patch and T-shirt to wear proudly in Germany.
