Thanks a little luck live on stage:

Visitors of the Major Incident Drill 2019

Only guests from the neighbourhood forum are usually invited to BASF's annual major incident drill. A novelty this year was the drawing of a total of ten wildcards, which enabled five external visitors and five employees from the Ludwigshafen site to attend the major incident drill 2019 live. Read here how they experienced the exercise:

"It was very interesting to witness the exercise. To see the fire department in action is something different than on the open day. One notices how slowly three minutes can pass when one consciously waits for time to pass". 


Sandra Berger,

Employee at the Ludwigshafen site

Always ready: the colleagues of the site fire department on arrival at the place of action.
Various water guns are used by the site fire department.
"As a professional firefighter (in Worms) and as a paramedic for the Maltese, I observed the major incident drill exercise from a special angle. It was very exciting to see how everything works and I took many impressions with me in a short time. In general, the major incident drill was very coordinated and clear. Everything was clearly marked". 

Thorsten Walther,

External visitor

"The exercise was very exciting for me. I was impressed by the cooperation between the fire department and the emergency rescue services and the good coordination."


Florian Urgulu,

Employee at the Ludwigshafen site

Thanks to exercises, a well-rehearsed team: for a coordinated rescue, it has to be quick and every move has to be on point.
All specitc questions of the guests about the major incident drill  were answered by many colleagues directly at the location of the event.

"On the way to the exercise, I was very excited. I kept asking the firefighter a lot of questions. Now, after the answers and the major incident drill, I'm more relaxed." 


Tanja Heine,


"It is fascinating what a great staff is behind this exercise. Everything went very well. I think in case of emergency, it'll all be a little quicker." 


Christiane Reske,

External visitor and mother of a BASF firefighter


At the same time as the exercise, all guests were informed about the all next steps of the major incident drill via headphones.


The wildcard winners were impressed by the major incident drill.
