Three MEPs table a parliamentary question about fire prevention and smoke detection

6th November 2019

MEPs Theresa Griffin (S&D), Pernille Weiss (EPP) and Seán Kelly (EPP) co-signed a parliamentary question about fire safety measures of prevention and detection.

Extending the use of smoke alarms was one of the recommendation that the Modern Building Alliance presented in the EU Fire Safety Guide .

It has also been discussed during our Breakfast Roundtable held in the European Parliament beginning of October.

The Modern Building Alliance positively welcomes this initiative to push the Commission to take action to harmonise the use of smoke detectors all around the EU.

This is the “low hanging fruit” to decrease the number victims and damage due to fire.
