On Sunday, 12 September 2021, the fire brigade at the Luxembourg Fire and Rescue Centre (Centre d'Incendie et de Secours Luxembourg) left their old premises on Route d’Arlon to move to their brand new station at the National Fire and Rescue Centre (Centre National d’Incendie et de Secours) located in Ban de Gasperich, where they were welcomed by Taina Bofferding, the Minister for Home Affairs (Ministre de l'Intérieur), and by Mr Paul Schroeder, General Director of the Grand Ducal Fire and Rescue Corps.
On this occasion, a convoy of some 30 fire vehicles wound its way from the old premises on Route d'Arlon towards the city centre, passing Luxembourg City Hall before turning onto Boulevard Royal and heading to Ban de Gasperich.
Lydie Polfer, Mayor of the City of Luxembourg and President of the CGDIS Board: "After over half a century on Route d'Arlon, our fire fighters will now be operating from one of the most modern stations in Europe. This is also a way to thank these brave men and women, who come to the population’s aid day after day.
