Visiting with kids

Due to the annually repeating cases of medical care or attendance on the fairground the Düren fire service asks you to take the following precautions:

Show your kids Feuerwache 1 (= Fire Station 1) upon entering the fairground and Feuerwache 2 (= Fire Station 2) at the other end of the grounds where they should report to in case they cannot find their accompanying adults any more.

Children necessarily give to cards with your name, address and a particular phone number so that fire or police as soon as possible can contact the supervising adult on the court or the parents.

Please write your mobile phone number onto the skin of the lower arm of your kid so this information for rescue personnel cannot get lost .

Please dress your children according to the weather.

In summer sunshine please make them wear a hat and use sun blocker.

In hot temperatures make sure your kids do drink sufficiently.

Parents should also remember to bring some ointments for the immediate treatment of insect bites. Those can of  course also be treated at the first aid stations and in both fire stations on the fairground.
