Governments across Europe since years are facing an additional challenge when it comes to master crisis situations. In today’s environment, characterised by growing urbanisation, a mobile and multicultural population and the dismantling of the old WW2-sirens, in combination with the growing use of social networks, new methods of alarming the potentially endangered population are necessary.

Euralarm supports the establishment of a pan-European scheme for certification of service providers. It has engaged many of its members to work towards the development of the proposed European Standard EN16763 (‘Services for fire safety systems and security systems’), which will face a final vote by national committees in 2016.The industry needs the support of the European Commission, and certification bodies, to ensure effective implementation of the standard.

We ask certification bodies to join Euralarm in the development of testing and certification schemes based on the proposed EN16763 standard, and seek the backing of the European Commission in this work.

The European Commission’s Smart Cities and Communities Initiative is a welcome step to ensure that new technologies play a role in improving the urban environment.

However, the Commission’s 2011 initiative and its 2012 Innovation Partnership should be broader in scope, extending from transport and energy to other areas of urban life, including security. Euralarm seeks to raise awareness of the safety and security aspects of smart cities and ensure that they play a role in future activities. This will include effective Public Emergency Alarm and Response that can alert populations across borders and ensure that disaster response can be as effective as possible.

We call on the European Commission to include fire safety and security aspects as part of its future work on smart cities, including research projects funded under Horizon 2020.We also ask the Commission to examine the need for a European Public Emergency Alarm and Response System and work with EU and non-EU governments to agree a common approach and standards.
