Brussels| 6 September 2017

On 6 September, firefighters will be meeting Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to talk about their concerns and what they see as the key issues for fire safety.

Fire Safe Europe, in cooperation with firefighters, is asking the European Institutions to:

  1. Make changes to ensure that tests to evaluate the performance of facades in a fire are based on real‐life situations where fires can be large scale.
  2. Introduce requirements to test the toxic smoke from construction products, and to label those products with their results so that builders and consumers can make informed choices.
  3. Develop a European Fire Safety Strategy: Many EU policies impact fire safety, a focussed strategy would enable the EU to have a coordinated approach to fire safety in buildings.

Join our call today!
