About Fire Safe Europe (FSEU)

Fire Safe Europe was founded in 2011 by a broad and unique alliance of fire experts, firefighters, 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 of daily life: fire safety.

Fire Safety Europe promotes the highest standards for fire safety in buildings in Europe for regulations, policies, test methods and best practices.

Its role is to connect policy makers, firefighters, fire experts, NGOs and industries in view of keeping people safe from fire in every building they spend time in.
