Team FSEU participated in FIREX International on 19-21 June 2018 in London – an occasion to meet with stakeholders and to learn about the latest developments in the fire sector.
With a packed agenda, FIREX was a great opportunity to gain insights:
- on the fire sector response to the independent review of building regulations and fire safety by the Fire Sector Federation (FSF),
- on evacuation from tall buildings,
- on developments since Grenfell by the Fire Protection Association (FPA)
- and much more.
Juliette Albiac, FSEU Managing Director, said that “coming to FIREX really shows the excellence on fire safety across the EU. We discovered many innovations which can improve fire safety in buildings and are looking forward to collaborating with new partners to achieve this goal.”
Our Public Affairs Officer, Sarah Debbiche Krichen, added that “what is most striking is the diversity of solutions out there, some stemming from a behavioral approach, especially regarding evacuation, others linked to new technologies. The fire sector is diverse and approaches problems from widely different angles. This can be a strength”.

The team is looking forward to FIREX 2019!
