About Us

Who is Fire Safe Europe?

Fire Safe Europe is the first European Association advocating for fire safety in buildings with an active Community of 650+ fire experts. Our mission is to improve fire safety in buildings for people and society.

We are the European centre for expertise, networking and resources on fire safety in buildings. Our European Fire Safety Community offers a permanent place for fire safety stakeholders to connect, pool knowledge and work collaboratively on solutions to improve fire safety in buildings.

Today, Fire Safe Europe members are researchers, architects, international and European associations, fire engineers, firefighters, national and European policy makers, and 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 Safe Europe?

Fires in buildings are now bigger, more unpredictable and more dangerous than ever, 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 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.

Our Mission

To this end, we intend to be the leading voice of fire safety in Europe, driving change and having an impact. We want to bring people from the fire sector to the table, so they can work together on addressing challenges, finding solutions and putting them in action. We want everyone in this field to know that they can rely on us and that they can come to us with questions and ideas at any time. We want to build a community always looking forward and getting things done. We are ready to face challenges in our journey to make people safe from fire.
