The fire departments of weibno and the neighboring fire departments of sollberg and lilling and the fire department of the municipality of dohma, to which the municipality of cotta has belonged since the territorial reform in saxon switzerland, were also present.
With cotta, the municipality of weibenohe has had a partnership since 1990, which started from the district twin town with pirna after the fall of the wall. Of all the municipal partnerships, weibenohe is the only municipality that has still maintained this partnership. Above all, the fire departments of the communities of cotta, weibenohe and now also dohma have lived this friendship and also formed private friendships.
After the territorial reform in the partner municipality, the local mayor suggested extending the partnership to the entire municipality of dohma. The weibenohe municipal council agreed to the proposal, and on the occasion of the fire department’s anniversary celebration, the already designed certificates were to be signed. Mayor matthias heinemann of dohma and host mayor rudolf braun met in the expanded and redesigned rooms of the fire department.
Where mayor rudolf braun’s office used to be, there are now tables and benches in the firefighters’ new training room. "They did everything on their own", said rudolf braun, not without pride, about the creative and successful renovation of the old town hall, where lamps dangle from the ceiling in the form of a hydrant or in the shape of a hose connection.
The former meeting room for the municipal councils has now become an extended dressing room for the active military personnel, also a new kitchen was made, by the weibnoher carpenter matthias spiel. In a cupboard in front of the cake entrance, the wooden figure of saint florian, the patron saint of the fire department, is solemnly illuminated.

The firefighters spent several saturdays to give the rooms a new face. "The municipality only supported with material", said rudolf braun. In total, this amounted to about 60,000 euros. The new rooms are now used by the fire department for training, but also to talk about the experience after the missions and also to have a little social time.
All these people here blessed pastor andreas hornung with the dedication of the new rooms. In the meantime, the many guests in the tent in front of the firehouse ordered sausage and bratwurst to celebrate the birthday and the other two events with music in the best french tradition.
