Main Access Points: The main access points from Sites DE6, DE19, and DE20 are outside the actual boundaries of the site and are connected by roads to Site DE9. The only access to the complex is to the north behind a parking lot and consists of two consecutive checkpoints. Generally, the site is not entered by personal vehicles. At the first checkpoint, loads are inspected and loaded by forklift onto site-owned trucks. Individuals must undergo DNA and metal detector testing at the entrance and are screened by sniffer dogs for the presence of explosives. All luggage is examined with X-rays and, if necessary, inspected more closely. They will also be scanned for thaumaturgic or psionic influences before entering. It is not allowed to bring personal weapons, medicine or drinks into the location. Liquids, medicines, and weapons delivered to the site will be inspected like all goods before they are accepted to rule out manipulation.

The second control post presents those who want to enter the site with several memetic agents against which there must be an inoculation and asks several security questions. Questions as well as memes are changed at irregular intervals. All individuals here are also fitted with a battery-free RFID wristband that is scanned before entering any facility on Site-DE9's premises and also within those premises. If individuals are detected without this tag, an alarm is sounded and the suspect is apprehended, using lethal force if necessary. These tags are wristbands and can only be removed by sharp objects, but this prevents sensors from detecting them correctly.

  • Guard Post Staff: Both guard posts are always equipped with 2 guard dogs each and 5 guards, each equipped with an HK SFP9, pepper spray, taser guns and telescopic baton. Additionally, all guards have access to MG4 machine guns. In addition, an MG5 on a mount is positioned and manned at both checkpoints in a nest. This weapon is largely for intimidation, but is also intended to be used against more resistant targets. All guards are permitted to fire with lethal effect in the event of resistance from potential candidates for arrest, even though they have been urged to keep the subject alive if possible. Additionally, assistance of RTF-DE9-𝔖 "SIE" (i.e. THEY, a joke regarding the Bielefeld Conspiracy) may be called in via a silent alarm within two minutes.

Main Area: The main area within the site houses several buildings. Directly to the north are the infirmary and several barracks housing the RTF-DE9-𝔖 "SIE", the dog squadron, and large portions of numerous MTFs. To the west is the power plant, as well as some storage facilities and staff housing and recreational facilities. To the south are several laboratories for researching contained anomalies, as well as administration, an atomic clock, office spaces, and the engineering office responsible for maintaining the Eisler-Johann space isolator system and the Eisler Wormhole Projector. Anomaly containment facilities and a test site adjoin to the east. The entire site is bounded by a five-meter-wide gravel bed, three energized chain-link fences with barbed wire tops, and watchtowers. In addition to fixed MG5 machine guns and 40 mm CWTS machine guns, the watchtowers also have PAL2000 rocket launchers, an HK GMW grenade machine launcher with explosive and chemical munitions, and LPX-Series Laser Projectors.

Barracks and Infirmary: The barracks have enough space to accommodate up to two hundred soldiers. Each barracks has weapon lockers with the most common small arms, in addition, in weapon depots, hangars and garages located somewhat remotely due to security regulations, are all non-anomalous weapons and vehicles accessible to the German-speaking Foundation. The barracks where Mobile Task Force DE4-𝔙 "Die Verteidiger" (i.e. The Defenders) is quartered additionally has a workshop and storage units for SCP-150-DE. The infirmary, located in the immediate vicinity, has 25 beds and rooms for hermetic quarantine and surgical procedures. Some of these rooms are equipped with heavily reinforced walls and doors, as they are intended for the treatment of anomalous wounds and diseases.

  • Employee Housing: Site-DE9 personnel are housed in buildings protected from the outside by 1-meter-thick reinforced concrete walls. Likewise, in the event of a containment breach or attack, all windows and doors are sealed with armored steel bulkheads. There are numerous recreational facilities, such as a sports and swimming hall, a bowling alley, a movie theater, a library and media center, and, due to high demand, since 2015 a video game club. As with the rest of the site, all Internet and telecommunications traffic is monitored here. If monitoring algorithms register communications with confidential content, they are cut off and the room where the offender is located is sealed off until he or she is picked up by site security. Because of the inspection of all food and cooking utensils, the canteen is considered the safest on the entire European continent and provides a daily menu with five choices. All buildings in the accommodation area are equipped with automatic shutters that close in the evening hours and open in the morning to simulate night, as there is no day-night cycle in SCP-250-DE-1.
  • Power Plant: Site-DE9 is operated by three separate thorium power plants, and currently a fusion reactor is also under construction. The reactors are built about 25 meters underground and are shielded from the surface by large amounts of concrete to prevent radiation. In addition, the site has numerous accumulators to run at full capacity for two months even in the event of a failure of all power generators.
  • Laboratories, Administration and Offices: The laboratories of site-DE9 are sufficiently equipped to perform the most common physical and chemical experiments in them. Experiments with biological organisms are also possible, but only to the extent sufficient to determine their danger and possible susceptibility to various influences. The engineering office, also located in this complex, is manned at all times and maintains constant radio contact with Outpost-DE4/250 in Bielefeld, with which it jointly controls the Eisler-Johann Space Isolator and the Eisler Wormhole Projector. In case of malfunction, a team of mechatronics engineers is on call to fix the problem. The engineering office is located in a small bunker under the building complex, as is the administration, which is connected to all facilities via a landline. The server rooms are also located in the bunker facility and are regularly cross-checked with those in Site-DE2. If differences outside the norm occur, an investigation is initiated. The administration is housed in a bunker below the building, which has no emergency exits.

  • Containment Facilities: The containment facility is located 30 meters underground and is designed to hold highly dangerous and difficult-to-contain anomalies and is therefore always manned by at least 50 guards. These are equipped with Tasers, batons and one HK SFP9 each, but also carry either a Remington 870 shotgun or a G27 assault rifle. Also available in the guard offices are RGW 90, Panzerfaust 3 and M47 Dragon bazookas, MG5 machine guns, FLW70 flamethrowers and MZP1 grenade pistols with stun, irritant gas and explosive grenades. Guards must wear bulletproof combat gear at all times and also carry an NBC gas mask.

The containment complex itself is spread over five floors, separated by 20 meters of reinforced concrete and accessible via three different elevators that can be buried in extreme cases. Containment chambers are not finstalled, but built as modules in a workshop and transported to the desired position by a trolley system. The side walls are secured by armored steel and several meters of reinforced concrete, several steel bulkheads block access to the transport system, which is additionally filled with flash cement in case of registered damage. The front is less reinforced with one meter of reinforced concrete and a 5 cm thick armored steel door to encourage escape in that direction in case of breakouts. Generally, the more dangerous the anomaly, the deeper it is kept. However, this is only to play for time and to exhaust any escapees, since the same security measures prevail at all levels.

Automatic turrets with an MK30/ABM machine canons are installed at 30-meter intervals in the corridors. Their automatic targeting detects targets by their shape and gait and fires until the enemy stops moving. Furthermore, all walls and doors have sensors that report damage and breaches. In the latter case, the immediate area is sealed off by drop bulkheads until they are reopened from the outside. The guard can also decide whether to flood the sealed-off area or containment space with either stun gases or chemical warfare agents, or to play various memes over the loudspeakers. Should all this fail, the corridors and isolation cells can be buried.

Testing Area: Site-DE9's test area has retractable walls because it is normally used as a helipad, such as in the event of an evacuation or to deliver new anomalies. Tests with anomalies only take place when they are passive. Individually ignitable mines and automatic powder extinguishers that deploy in case of fire are distributed throughout the area.

Additional Facilities

Containment Area DE9: Containment Area DE9-A is located 1 km north of Site-DE9 and occupies a designated area of 98 km2. This area is designated for the construction of isolation cells for anomalies that, because of their size or destructiveness, cannot be safely housed in the containment facility proper. The individual facilities have small offices, a break room, and storage for protective equipment for the containment teams.

Size: 98 km2

Security Facilities: Mines, vehicle and tank barriers (except on access roads), checkpoints for all containment facilities in the area to verify identity, DNA, credentials, and all belongings, automatic gun turrets (40mm CWTS, can be deactivated, responds to movement) to secure access roads. Undeveloped terrain is not secured.

Basic Configuration: Undeveloped land

Testing Area DE9-A: This area is located 300 m east of Site-DE9 and is intended for anomaly testing, therefore it is subject to special security measures. Since the site has been completely walled off, entry is only possible by helicopter. When it is not in use, guards patrol the perimeter with the same armament as personnel in the containment area, and gun turrets face outward and fire as soon as they detect movement. This is signaled by warning signs 200 meters around the entire perimeter.

Size: 2 km2

Security Facilities: 5 m high reinforced concrete wall, secured with a pipe to make grabbing difficult, catwalks for guards. 20 spring-guns (40mm CWTS), explosive charges in the floor, ground level freight elevator secured by solid steel plates.

Basic Configuration: The test site is directly connected to the containment area via a tunnel, which is normally blocked by several bulkheads. Test objects are transferred to the area according to the model of Site-DE12 via a ground-level freight elevator in the center, usually together with its containment module if feasible.

During a test, the anomaly in the center is released. In the case of existing intelligence, it is then given time to acclimate to the area. If necessary, personnel are flown into the area by helicopter, either to conduct tests or to recapture the object. The ground of the compound is layered with a network of individually detonatable explosive devices that can be used to counter any escape attempt. Sensors report the object's current position at all times, and surveillance cameras located throughout the site capture any movement.

Testing Area DE9-B: This area designates the ruins of Old Bielefeld. This area has been used for troop training and weapons testing since 2010. The surrounding area is monitored by motion sensors for unauthorized entry, but otherwise no further security precautions are in place, as MTF units from outside are also frequently present here for training.

Size: 114 km2

Security Facilities: Surveilance cameras

Basic Configiuration: Personnel are normally transported to the area by all-terrain vehicle or troop carrier. Surveillance cameras then document the exercises and tests for later evaluation.

Additional Information

Before the site was built, the ruined city of Old Bielefeld was first investigated by archaeologists and the bodies of the deceased were collected and cremated. On the advice of the Ethics Committee, these ashes were then scattered discreetly in the area surrounding the existing Bielefeld.

Construction began in 2000, while archaeological work was ongoing, and was supported by products from SCP-164-DE to save costs, and was completed in 2008. In the meantime, several construction works had already been started in Containment Area DE9-A to accommodate particularly dangerous anomalies.

During the Eisler Johann Space Isolator outage period in 2010, outbreaks increased over the last two months as the site gradually ran out of resources. Three anomalies escaped the site and were destroyed during the attempted transition to the base universe due to the spatial imbalance that still existed at the portal boundaries. Proposals to use these boundaries for further neutralizations were rejected by the O4 Council because it was unknown how such actions would affect SCP-250-DE.

Since archaeological work at Old Bielefeld had been completed that year, O4-12 declared the area a military training area. A veto by the Ethics Committee for preservation of cultural heritage was declared ineffective after the O5 Council became involved, on the grounds that the public would never know about Old Bielefeld due to the anomalous nature of this dimension.
