Fire protection for all

The Fire Section promotes the protection of people, property and environment from fire.

Focus on advocacy

Together with a diverse number of stakeholders in Europe, we collaborate on finding solutions for today’s challenges, such as CPR and pan European testing as well as tomorrow’s challenges for fire safety in a digitized world.
