cut the wood. The current fire station of the Holzschlag Fire Department is showing its age, having been built in the early 1990s. On Saturday 13 May a groundbreaking ceremony was held for a new home for the Fire Brigade and other clubs – including the Function Hall and Youth Room.
“Today is a great day for Holzschlag. The fire station is no longer so modern and small for the size of the fire brigade. Now a new home is being built not only for the fire brigade, but also for a multifunctional building for all clubs in Holzschlag. Anyone can use it can be a Holzschlager proud, as it will serve as an emergency base for blackout scenarios, etc.,” said Mayor Christian Pensker.

Three parking spaces and plenty of spaces

“The new fire station has space for three parking spaces and enough space for the team and other clubs. All rooms are barrier-free. All clubs have been involved in the planning in order to build a multifunctional hall suitable for all,” says Fire Brigade Captain Bernard Lackner.
“It’s important for a fire brigade like Holzschlag to have a suitable environment. That’s why we fully support this project and I’m looking forward to the new building for the fire brigade and all the clubs in Holzschlag,” confirmed Vizebgm. Vanessa Tudor.

Volunteering is very important in Burgenland and contributes greatly to the good development of the country. I would like to thank the Holzschlag fire brigade on their behalf,” adds LHStv Astrid Eisenkopf. For everyone’s sake, the team is on top and that’s very important.

60 members

Currently, the Holzschlag Volunteer Fire Brigade has 60 members.
Among them are 43 active (41 men and two women), 13 young firefighters (eight boys and five girls) and four (male) reservists.
“When I joined the Holzschlag fire brigade in 1988 it was already state of the art. The current fire station was built in the early 1990s. However, it has become too small and no longer meets the requirements of the future. That is why I am glad that a new home is now possible. He will also need a lot of support from comrades and local residents,” says ABI Fire Brigade Chief Hans Hettlinger.
