Europe must tackle fatal fire safety flaws

(Published by the Emergency Services Ireland magazine)
More than 4000 people are killed by fire every year in Europe, and improved EU-wide building fire safety regulations are urgently needed to save lives, according to a White Paper recently issued by Fire Safe Europe (FSEU).
The White Paper was launched in Brussels to coincide with meetings between Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and firefighters from the European Fire Fighters Unions Alliance (EFFUA), who are campaigning to improve fire safety in buildings for European citizens.
