European Fire Safety Week 2020

10 actions that will improve fire safety in Europe

16 – 22 NOVEMBER, 2020 EU Brussels, BE

You are most welcome at the European Fire Safety week 2020. During the first European Fire Safety Week in 2019, a number of experts were invited to share their knowledge to get a better picture of what needs to be done in order to make a difference concerning fire safety for people in Europe. This Fire Safety week provided us with a lot of information and has allowed us to make a solid fire safety agenda for the coming years. This action plan is our agenda for the next two years. An agenda that gives focus to, and keeps the focus on, the themes that deserve the most attention.

Final output

To reduce fires in Europe we propose, based on the findings of the first European Fire Safety Week 2019, we will set steps on the 10 actions that will improve fire safety in Europe.

Who will follow the Frederiksborg Fire & Rescue Service from Denmark – with their project FireFightersPlus – and become the next winner of the European Fire Safety Award? Registration is open! You can now submit your project. See the procedure and the nomination form and submit your project before October 1st.

The first European Fire Safety Award winner ‘FireFightersPlus’ was submitted by the Frederiksborg Fire & Rescue Service from Denmark on behalf of 6 project partners. The objective of the project is to offer high-quality training and support to firefighters on how to use their position as both experts and role models to promote fire safety among the most vulnerable groups.
This project gives an important impulse to change the focus of firefighters across Europe by using their knowledge, skills and high credibility to help change the behaviour and improving the awareness of the EU’s citizens.
