Kühn was a functionary in German disaster management for more than 50 years. In his role as chairman of the Federal Association of Directorate Units/Facilities in Civil Protection (ARKAT) and as chairman of the Protection Forum, Kühn was particularly committed to research in civil protection. In 2013, Kühn was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit on Ribbon for his exemplary commitment.

We would like to express our sincere condolences and will cherish the memory of his commitment to German civil protection.
