Silver fire brigade radio performance badge: 22 new silver-plated radio operators from the Steyr region Country and city

Steyrland / Steyr / Linz. On Friday, April 14, 2023, the 43rd competition for the Fire Service Radio Performance Badge in silver took place at the Austrian Higher School of Fire Services in Linz.

450 comrades from Upper Austria performed the FKAE Performance Test – Radio, Communications and Tasks in Operational Control – Silver. Among them are 16 comrades from Steyrland and 7 from Steyr. 168 judges ensured the correct procedure and assessment.

A prerequisite for participation in this competition is the successfully completed Radio Course – a multi-day training course followed by the successfully completed audition for the Bronze Radio Performance Badge, which must be at least one year in advance. This ensures that you get to deal with the subject over a longer period of time, thus enhancing your knowledge and skills.

In Steyrland this year Christoph Ebbenberger FF Garsten, Christian Schmidthaler FF Sand, Louis Kronsteiner FF Sand, Maximilian Kurz FF Neusug, Johann Paulus FF Dietach, Christian Group FF Pechleren, Rene Schenkenmayer FF Pechleren, Florian Frischlag pf Wolvern Shark Sebastian Burgsteiner FF Schättleten, Lukas Burgsteiner FF Bad Hall, Martin Bernreiter FF Gross-Ramming, David Maderthaner FF Sand, Julia Kirschbaumsteiner FF Gross-Ramming and Michelle Huber FF Heilbern participated in this audition and all passed this competition. Congratulations on the “white flag” in Steyrland County.

In a radio performance competition, everyone is on their own, and it is the individual performer who is important in mastering the tasks. The competitions allow fire brigade radio operators – depending on their level of training in radio communications – to demonstrate their achievements in the form of this test.
