Worldwide, touristic travel is on the rise. International tourism actually dwarfs any other type of leisure business in terms of growth and one of the global regions benefitting the most from this trend is Europe: the world’s first tourism destination.
Marc Chenevoy, the Technical Manager part of the Euralarm Professional Team, explains why it is more than ever important that our industry gets down to the nitty gritty of European standardisation.
SES is the Swiss Association of Installers of Safety and Security Systems. Like many other associations within Euralarm it builds its reputation on a commitment to excellence. In an industry with the objective and purpose to save lives, protect people and property, this is a must.
Zug, Switzerland, 31 January 2017 – The conference on Research into fire technologies shaping future standards, organised by Euralarm and EUSAS, takes place in Berlin on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 February 2017. Those who are interested in participating in the conference can download a leaflet from the Euralarm and EUSAS websites and register directly.
More and more building owners and managers are outsourcing the maintenance of their buildings and systems to specialised facility management companies. By doing so, the fire safety and security systems are often bundled together with other types of systems into one maintenance service contract. This approach not only lowers the costs but also reduces the number of service suppliers. However, the maintaining of fire safety and security system services by generalist service suppliers also brings the risk of non-specialists becoming responsible for the maintenance of fire safety and security services.
Euralarm and EUSAS will be organising a European conference on research into fire technologies that will shape the future standards. The conference will take place in Berlin on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 February 2017.
