About European Fire Safety Alliance

About European Fire Safety Alliance
The European Fire Safety Alliance is a project to reduce the risk from fire in the home and is delivered by an Alliance of Professionals from within the European Fire Sector. The European Fire Safety Alliance believes the vast majority of fire deaths that occur following an accidental fire in the home are preventable. It is also true that fire discriminates in as much as it affects the most vulnerable people (particularly the elderly) in the most vulnerable areas of society.

Share your knowledge
The European Fire Safety Alliance shares national knowledge and innovations on international level. We form an independent alliance of fire professionals and prevention specialists that does not support any individual fire safety product, technology or commercial organization.

EuroFSA is an authority on fire risk, based on a strong statistical evidence base. We do research, support and encourage research, studies and reports that highlight the dangers from fire in the home and support their widespread availability. We focus on sharing knowledge and we deliver strong scientific relevant consistent messages on home fire safety.

Regular stakeholder meetings
A core group of influencers on fire science and fire safety nurtures and motivate a worldwide network/group of stakeholders and leaders. This strong professional network is motivated and informed through regular stakeholder meetings and contact moments.

The core group is formed by:
– Elie van Strien, former Chief Fire Officer (NL)
– Krzysztof Biskup, former Director Scientific & Research Centre for Fire Protection (PL)
– Chris Addiers, Pres. Federation of European Fire Officer Associations (BE)
– Rene Hagen, professor of Fire Safety (NL)
– Rob Baardse, Executive Director Dutch Burns Foundation (NL)
