About Fire Safe Europe
Fire Safe Europe is the European association for fire safety in buildings. We are a non-profit organisation whose mission is to improve fire safety in buildings for people and society.
Fire in buildings are now bigger, more unpredictable and more dangerous than ever before, and many of the current regulatory requirements around fire safety in buildings are not providing an adequate level of fire protection for European citizens. Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) intends to change this status quo by working with experts, policy and decision makers to ensure that people and communities across Europe are safe from fire in every building they spend time in.
Today, FSEU members are fire experts, researchers, firefighters, European associations, and international companies manufacturing and supplying cables, concrete, ceilings, fire protection equipment, flame retardants, insulation, sealants and more. Together we are working to make Europe fire safe.
We are proud to be a platform for everyone in the fire community and to provide a place for collaboration and learning.

Why Fire Safety Matters
In Fire Safe Europe we understand that a suitable and reliable approach towards fire safety in buildings must be undertaken within a framework suitable to implement the growing and changing number of expectations for buildings in an efficient, transparent and robust way.
"I believe that everyone within the fire family has a responsibility to keep people safe. No matter the scale of their individual involvement, influence or role, they should look to Maximize safety throughout the life of each building from it being a design idea, to being fully occupied."
"As a long time campaigner in the European Parliament to raise Fire Safety standards in Europe I have consistently worked to raise awareness of this issue, including submitting a Written Declaration with cross-party support that called on the Parliament to take further action to improve fire safety in buildings. I am encouraged to see that the Commission is taking positive steps to enhance the consistency of Fire Safety in EU legislation, especially by providing support for the governance structure of the Fire Information Exchange Platform. However, there is still much that the EU can do to enhance fire safety, and it is essential that MEPs continue to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining high standards."
“We spend 90% of our time in buildings – our homes, offices, hospitals, schools, hotels, public buildings – and these are the places where 90% of fires take place. The number of people killed or hospitalised with serious injuries as a result of building fires is unacceptable and yet, we are surrounded by fire risk every day. Recognising this is the first step in addressing the issue. It’s time to take a serious effective action.”
“For me, fire safety means saving lives. Nothing is more important than this. It is that simple, the rest is only chatter.”
