Coordination on fire safety will help achieving Green Deal’s objectives

Euralarm, together with 17 other organizations focussed on improving the safety of European citizens, has sent a joint letter to Mr. Frans Timmermans, vice president of the European Commission, calling for the establishment of structural coordination of all initiatives of the European Commission related to the fire safety of European buildings.

While fire safety of buildings is a national competence, it is impacted by and impacts many EU policies and initiatives of the EU Green Deal. A better coordination will ensure that fire safety is properly addressed and complements the energy transition.
