With a open house the workers’ samaritan association (ASB) kronach celebrates the inauguration of its sunday, 30. June, from 10.30 a.M. The inauguration of its new branch in the kronach city area. The public is cordially invited to take a look at the new domicile in the siechenangerstrabe. Interested parties can not only inspect the new rooms, but also see the ASB rescue dog squad in action or visit the ASB wish wagon in franconia. Of course, the physical well-being will also be well taken care of.
Space constraints and decentralized location made the move necessary
ASB operates two senior citizens’ homes in rothenkirchen and marktrodach and a social station with a driving service for disabled and sick people. However, the limited space available, the socio-political development, the need for driving services and the future-oriented orientation of the voluntary services made a relocation to the city of kronach unavoidable. In the search for an adequate location, the former car repair shop "eisentrager" in siechenangerstrabe was found. The building was in good condition and offered ideal conditions for all ASB’s needs, also thanks to the adjoining property.
1.7 million euros have been invested in the purchase and renovation of the present. The renovation included the installation and renewal of all electrical systems, the installation of an energy-efficient heating system, the renewal of the windows and partly the doors. Wall, ceiling and floor coverings were also renewed. In addition, the sanitary facilities have been adapted to the needs of the service operation.
The business office and the patient transport service, among other things, are now located in the heart of the county seat. The new location will make life much easier for the patient transport service in particular, as it will mean shorter journeys. A regular destination, for example, is the helios-frankenwaldklinik in kronach, which can now be reached much more quickly.
Plenty of room for volunteerism
On the second floor, which was previously used as living space, over 200 square meters of offices were created for the management and administration. The former showroom of the car dealership on the first floor was used to create training rooms for broad-based training: first-aid courses, own training events for nurses and sanitary staff, as well as occasional open offers in elderly care. Areas for the numerous voluntary services have been set up on the first floor of the building, where cars were last repaired. In addition, the new site will provide housing for the volunteer disaster response team, the sanitation task force and the rescue dog team. Twelve parking spaces for large vehicles have been created in the former workshop hall.
On the northern part of the land parking lots for employees and guests were created, a part of the land was rented to the neighboring stern pharmacy. The eastern part of the property – a grassy area – can be used for club activities or as an expansion area for official vehicles.
Who would like to make itself a picture of the new premises of the ASB circle association kronach, is cordially invited to the day of the open door on sunday, 30. June 2019, from 10.30 to 16.30 o’clock.
