(26 May 2021) The need to maintain and build firefighter solidarity across Europe has not changed following the UK’s departure from the European Union this year. Firefighters made links across borders before the EU was created and firefighters are committed to strengthening those connections, whatever governments and international organisations we live under.

The need for firefighter solidarity across Europe has never been greater. Firefighters are on the frontline tackling climate change. Firefighters keep people safe in their homes. Firefighters are on the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic. Firefighters face common risks such as cancer and the same hazards at work. Firefighters stand shoulder to shoulder on the fire ground and in solidarity across Europe. Our unity is our strength. We pledge to continue to build our dialogue and unity, our common understanding and our common campaigns.
