EU Fire Safety Manifesto for 2024-2029 

Security Door
2 min read

The EU Manifesto for Fire Safety represents a critical initiative aimed at safeguarding citizens throughout Europe by enhancing the fire safety standards in buildings. As we face evolving risks and diverse challenges, this comprehensive strategy calls for unified action from European institutions and Member States to protect lives and properties from the ever-present threat of fire.

  • Almost 450 million citizens across the EU spend 90% of their time in buildings, whether at home, work, or for other activities.
  • These citizens expect an equal level of fire safety in any European building, regardless of their location.
  • The manifesto calls for the European institutions to develop and promote a consistent strategy with Member States to ensure the fire safety of all people living and working in buildings.
  • The need to act arises from alarming statistics: nearly 5000 fire-related casualties occur in domestic buildings within the EU each year.
  • Despite this, existing fire risks remain unmitigated, and new challenges arise that current fire safety regulations are not adequately addressing.
  • Obsolete electrical installations, flammable furniture and mattresses, and insufficiently widespread smoke alarms contribute to the risks.
  • The deployment of PV panels, EV charging points, and heat pumps (as part of the European Green Deal) introduces new ignition risks if fire safety is not considered.
  • Demographic shifts, including an ageing population and vulnerable groups, require specific attention to their safety needs in the context of fires.
  • Climate change adds unpredictability to fire safety challenges, affecting evacuation and firefighting operations
