This is the only museum of its type in the Ruhr region and is among the largest fire brigade museums in Germany. Especially impressive is the collection of turntable ladder vehicles, fire trucks and ambulances from bygone days. The oldest vehicle, a heavy brigade truck of the model Klöckner-Humbold-Deutz, was manufactured in 1942, and the newest "treasure," a turntable ladder IFA DL 30 from the GDR's inventory, in 1986.
AWD (August Wurring Düsselsdorf) was a German motorcycle company in the 1920s.
August Wurring's grandson, Thomas von der Bey opened a small museum in the former factory in 2008 featuring more than 30 bikes.
