Noch HO THW - Technical Aid Agency
Noch - HO THW (Technical Aid Agency)
In 2017 we are celebrating a small anniversary: In 1997 NOCH launched the first figures on the market and in the meantime our product line has grown considerably. By now, we offer more than 250 different figure sets and on www.modellfiguren.de even individual figures. This is no small feat.
The THW (Technical Aid Agency) set contains five model figures, all of which wear blue protective gear. The gear consists out of a bright blue knee-high jacket, a pair of bright blue pants and black boots. Of course, on their heads a yellow safety helmet is obligatory. Furthermore, the entire safety gear contains yellow reflectors for visibility and safety at night.
The figure set also contains a standby set.
The German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) or Technical Emergency Service was created on 22 August 1950 as a federal organisation for the protection of the German citizens in case of natural disasters. The federal agency in subserviant to the Ferderal Ministry of Interior and it is located in Bonn-Lengsdorf. Since 25 August 1953, the THW is a institution under public law. The THW's original German name "Technisches Hilfswerks" means "Technical Emergency Service", but is usually translated as "German Federal Agency for Technical Relief". Its predecessor was the Emergency Relief Service
