German firefighters visit the station on Route 66

Some German firefighters train in Tulsa and have hits on Route 66.

Volunteer firefighters from Celle, Tulsa’s sister city in Germany, are in Oklahoma to learn from Tulsa firefighters.

They spent part of the day at Station 66 in Tulsa.

Chief Dirk Heindorff says the Celle department is entirely voluntary, with around 500 people on call 24 hours a day.

“One guy, he sits in a fire department that gets five calls a year,” he said. “So this is huge, this is big. Go with the truck, that was very important to him.”

The firemen had plans to check out Marshall’s Brewery and go to a drill game.
