Product Overview

Later war example made of Zinc.

The Reichsluftschutzbund (RLB) was an organization in Nazi Germany in charge of air raid precautions in residential areas and among smaller businesses. The RLB was organized by Hermann Göring in 1933 as a voluntary association. Existing volunteer air raid precaution associations were forced to merge with RLB. The RLB was in charge of educating and training ordinary German men and women in civil defence procedures necessary for the basic level of local self-help of the civil population against air raids. The local level was formed around air raid wardens and operated in small first intervention squads. The training included fire fighting, protection against chemical weapons, communication procedures and preparation of houses and apartments against air raids. The RLB was dissolved by the Allied Powers after the end of World War II.
