"Blaulicht" maintains a close partnership with the Fire Protection Forum Austria, the immediate successor to the Graz Fire Protection Forum, which was founded in 1989 by the Graz Fire Brigades. Initially intended primarily to improve fire protection in the companies of the Styrian capital, it has increasingly developed into a national and international platform for security issues. Since the foundation of the Fire Protection Forum Austria, our active team has already trained more than 20,000 people in fire protection.
"The fire service journal 'Blaulicht' has developed continuously since 1886 into the Austrian market leader. Always up to date: innovative, competent, modern. "
