In 1948, our parent company BVS was founded by fire insurers operating in Upper Austria. The original task of BVS was to reduce damages caused by fire and their resolving by offering trainings and information, letting experts attend official negotiations and providing sworn experts for fire cause investigations at the State Office of Criminal Investigation and at the judicial authorities.
These assignments have been subject to constant further development. Today, BVS (Upper Austrian Fire Prevention Agency) is an institution whose employees and their know-how are in much demand.
Now and then, keeping pace with changing times. The prevention of fire with the most up-to-date technical knowledge has always been the top priority of our highly-qualified employees throughout the institution.
On 23 May 2018, we looked back and celebrated our anniversary together with pupils, the public and guests of honour.
