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.
