Residents who want specialized medical equipment should know that the voltage of current is different in Germany than the United States. You can use electrical appliances manufactured in the United States with a transformer. Transformers are used to handle different wattage which should be listed on the back of every appliance. Nowadays, many appliances are available with dual voltage so they simply need an adapter. Many of the quarters in the Baumholder Germany Housing community have been renovated to include both 110 and 220 voltage.
It is mandatory for service members to grant a statement of non-availability or an exception to policy if they want to live in local community non-government housing. Once the non-availability statement is granted, then service members can expect to aggressively seek housing. The HousingOffice will help them in this process. Normally, contractors and DOD civilians are not permitted to live in government-controlled quarters. If DOD civilians want to seek or sign a rental agreement they must go through the Housing Office. Contractors can contact their company for any queries or additional advice.
