OUR MISSION IS TO IMPROVE FIRE SAFETY IN BUILDINGS FOR EUROPEAN CITIZENS

Our Story

Fire Safe Europe was founded in 2011 by a broad and unique alliance of fire experts, fire fighters, international companies and European associations with one clear and common mission: that fire safety in buildings is made a priority across the EU.

Why? Because although the European Union (EU) has made many important strides to improve the sustainability and energy efficiency of buildings, those strides have sidestepped one of the oldest and most menacing threats daily life: fire safety.

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. Through this dynamic and growing organisation, we intend to change this status quo by working with experts, policy and decision makers to create a fire safe Europe for everyone.

What We Do

Raise awareness

Through the FireSafetyFirst campaign we create awareness on fire safety in buildings and call EU policy makers to take action for a Fire Safe Europe.

Share expertise

Our technical experts produce and share knowledge on fire safety in buildings by carrying out studies and collecting data, so that our advocacy is based on sound science and best practice.

Promote dialogue

We create a platform for all interested stakeholders to debate, exchange findings, best practices and ideas on how to make Europe’s buildings fire safe.

Fuel the debate

Through the FireSafetyFirst campaign we contribute to shaping the regulatory debate and we advocate for standards that reflect the real performance of construction products in a fire.

Build a network

We build solid relationships with all relevant stakeholders, creating a powerful network of policy makers, fire fighters, academics, NGOs and industries to work together for a Fire safe Europe.
