DSC 0205IACA places great value on its close ties with Laxenburg’s local community and civil society organizations. One of the most important of these is the fire brigade (Freiwillige Feuerwehr Laxenburg), which is entirely volunteer-based.

Representatives of the firefighters recently came to IACA to visit the campus and discuss their work with the Academy’s senior management.

“This shows how important volunteer and pro bono work is at the community level, bringing together people from different backgrounds in the common cause of doing good,” said Martin Kreutner, IACA’s Dean and Executive Secretary.

Following the visit IACA donated 1,000 EUR to support the outstanding work of the Laxenburg firefighters. The fire brigade has used the money to buy new digital pagers.
