This year was divided between organisational and administrative issues, and innovation and growth. On the business side, we can report an ongoing growth in membership, and of course the opening of the new Extinguishing Section.Our Advocacy, Marketing and Horizontal Compliance Committees have boosted our presence in ‘Brussels’ and in the international press, monitored developments in standardisation and informed our Members through highly appreciated newsletters. The growth in membership continued with Teletek as a new Industry Member in the Fire Section and BHE extending it membership from the Services also to the Fire and Security Sections.
In Euralarm, there are four Sections arranging separate Section Members’ Meetings. One of them if the Extinguishing Section, which covers services in the area of extinguishing controls, fixed fire-fighting systems including gas, sprinkler, water mist, powder and foam systems, fire extinguishers, fire extinguishing agents, new and emerging active technologies to extinguish or contain fires, and smoke and heat ventilation.
One Delegate to a Section is nominated by each company or association Members of the Section for a term of three years. The Chairman and the Vice-Chairman of a Section come from different Euralarm Members and take part in the Board. Section Members decide on their own work programmes, but report to the Board.
