Berlin – Los Angeles city partnership


At the Berlin Fire Department’s Open House on Sunday, 6 July 2014, Fire Chief Wilfried Gräfling introduced the project “Next Generation” to the public.

As the “next generation,” 10 young people whose parents are members of the Berlin Fire Department are traveling to Los Angeles this summer for an exchange of experience. During their stay, they will live with host families from the Los Angeles Fire Department. This group’s trip is launching the “Next Generation” project and paving the way for additional exchange between the two partner cities.
