The Federation of EUropean Fire Officers
The FEU informally had its maiden meeting in 1990. In 1992 they first met under the name FEU in Eastbourne (UK). It was not until 1995 that a vote took place on the constitution and the name FEU (Federation of European Union fire officers associations) was officially accepted. With the adoption of the new constitution in 2020, the name FEU has remained, but the official name has been changed to Federation of European fire officers.
An independent professional body
The FEU is the independent professional body of 24 European fire officer associations or state fire services (including UK and Norway) whose members are senior professionals that have responsibility for strategic management of the Fire and Rescue Services in their respective countries at municipal, county, regional or state level.
The mission of FEU is to share and exchange knowledge to deliver the best life and fire safety to the citizens in Europe.
