Statement of the President
“Digital networking, ongoing knowledge transfer between the areas of responsibility of the Federal Office, control concepts that are always being optimised, tasks geared towards future challenges, such as promoting alternative types of drive, cycle transport and strengthening local public transport, but also our specific tasks in civil protection.
These are our hallmarks, these are our competencies which we are committed to!
One thing is clear, however:
We create the framework in which you can contribute your knowledge and creativity in an optimum way, whether virtually, on site or from home in mobile work. Everyone brings along their own personality and story. And this is how WE comes into being - you can also become part of the team! "
