Training for fire protection officers

Fire protection officers are responsible for implementing all the fire protection measures in a building. For example, they ensure that smoking bans are complied with, escape routes are kept free from obstructions and fire detection systems are regularly checked.

The BVS – Brandverhütungsstelle für Oö. provides the required training.

The appointment of fire protection officers is governed by the OÖ Feuer- und Gefahrenpolizeigesetz (Section 10, Section 18) [Upper Austrian law governing responsibilities in connection with fires and hazards], the Arbeitsstättenverordnung (Section 43) [Austrian workplace regulations] and TRVB 119.

Please contact us, if you have any questions concerning the fire protection officer training.

Extinguishing simulation

Our goal is to prevent fires from starting at all. But if a fire does break out you need to be prepared. A fire extinguishing drill is therefore an essential part of many of our courses and seminars.

Extinguishing is practiced with our gas-operated extinguishing simulator. A variety of types of fires are simulated and extinguished using a portable fire extinguisher.

Independently of our courses, you can also book tailored drills that deal only with extinguishing fires and the simulation of specific fires
