Fire Safety Study

A new study of the Consumer Council concerning Fire safety shows clearly that fire protection in the private domain is underdeveloped: 2,0 - 2,5 million burns in Europa per year result in 20 000 to 25 000 fatalities. About 80% of these occur in private homes. It is high time that measures for the protection of consumers are taken. This study which contains in addition to an extensive analysis of accident patterns numerous proposals for improvements.
