|Abstract:||Fire service has evolved from practical reasons, namely because of the desire for greater security. Since villages and towns were mostly made out of wood, fire safety was among the greatest concern. The first records of the Fire Service (team composition, methods of fire fighting, ...) can be found in ancient Egypt. Firefighting organization begins to disintegrate during the expansion of Christianity in Europe. Over time, the fire fighting organized within the guild, but despite the good intentions, in the Middle Ages, such mode of organization of firefighting does not prove to be optimal, because there was still a large number of devastating fires. Fire brigades have begun to organize themselves within the monastic services. Fire fighting service organizationly moved from one sector to another. Focus of fire fighting service during World War II aimed at protection against air attacks.
After the World War II, the Fire Service on the Slovenian teritory began to organize District and Municipal Fire Brigades. The number of these is changing all the time, namely more declining than increasing. The situation remained the same until independence, more specifically, until 1993. At that time, there was a sharp increase in the creation of new firefighting associations. This trend was recorded for the Pomurje region as well, where there were 5 fire lines in 1993. Until 2002 this number increased to 21, even more were getting set up later on.
PGD Žižki is part of the Fire Brigade Črensovci. The formation of PGD Žižki dates back to the year 1924. History of PGD Žižki shows the relationship with the local community associations (raffles, parties, ...). PGD is always looking for ways to repay the help of villagers. Building, which should be a fire station, was given to TOKO firm so that local people would get employed. Today this “reimbursement” can be seen in terms of organizing activities, socializing, building sport areas...|
