EΦA is an informal platform for the exchange of best practices among Fire Services, Burns Victims, Politicians and Technology Partners in Europe. EΦA discussions and exchanges of best practices focus on two pillars: Fire Prevention and Disaster Management.
Europe is growing and fire prevention, rescue services and civil defence will be a cornerstone of European cooperation, especially with the growing threat of terrorism that we have upon us. We need harmonisation at the European level. As a result of our network of members we can offer a forum which helps to clarify complex legislation and responsibilities. Our main task is the establishment of contacts with the relevant authorities and representatives both on European and member state levels.
