The images of the past weeks from the flooded areas in Germany are shocking. The fates of the people and the extent of the destruction are moving us deeply. We wanted to make a contribution and thank the helpers for their unremitting efforts by donating the Berchtesgaden Volunteer Fire Department on behalf of our citema systems colleagues. The volunteer firefighters from Berchtesgaden have been tirelessly providing support in the flooded area during the past two weeks, rescuing residents and helping with cleanup and reconstruction.

For the future, we hope that the greater use of modern digital technologies will enable timely warnings of such disasters. Our thoughts are with the many people and their families who were affected by the flood disaster.
