The State Fire Brigade School Geretsried is located in the Upper Bavarian town of Geretsried in the Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen district . The state fire brigade school was opened on July 1, 1995 as the last of the three state fire brigade schools in Bavaria and emerged, among other things, from the state training center Bavaria for the air raid protection service (LSHD, founded in 1959). It is an authority directly subordinate to the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior .


Even before the state fire brigade school in Geretsried was founded, the location was already a training center for the protection of the population in Bavaria and can therefore look back on an eventful history.

Disaster Management School Bavaria

On January 1, 1970, the Bavarian Disaster Management School began its service. It emerged from the Bavarian State Training Center for the air raid rescue service. In contrast to its predecessor, the school was no longer run by the Bavarian Red Cross.

The preliminary construction decision on the construction of the school was issued on September 16, 1970 and construction finally began on May 29, 1974. The Rosenheim tax office was in charge of the construction. The first buildings were handed over on December 18, 1975, the last to be added was the practice area in autumn 1977.

On November 7, 1989, teaching was stopped for some time and GDR refugees were housed on the site for 10 days.

Due to the new concept of the federal government, the disaster control school was closed on June 30, 1995 after 36 years of service and replaced by the Geretsried State Fire Brigade School.
