European Summit for Firefighters: Strengthening Collaboration and Preparedness

Firefighters from across Europe gathered in Paris, France this week for the inaugural European Summit for Firefighters, a landmark event aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing best practices, and enhancing preparedness in the face of evolving challenges.

Hosted by the European Firefighters Association (EFA) and organized by the French and German Firefighters' Federations (FNSPF and DFV) the summit brought together firefighting professionals, experts, policymakers, and stakeholders to discuss key issues confronting the firefighting community and to chart a course for collective action.

One of the central themes of the summit was the importance of cross-border cooperation in responding to emergencies and disasters. With climate change exacerbating the frequency and intensity of wildfires, floods, and other natural disasters, firefighters emphasized the need for enhanced coordination and mutual aid mechanisms among European nations. 

By sharing resources, expertise, and personnel across borders, firefighters can effectively respond to emergencies and mitigate their impact on communities.

During Monday, there were several different round tables discussing climate change, volunteer firefighters and european civil protection challenges in the future. 

During Tuesday, CTIF President Milan Dubravac will hold a presentation about CTIF.
