Questionnaire

One of the Fire Prevention Commission's goals is to reduce fire deaths and casualties. As we would like to follow our goals as much as possible, we have prepared a short questionnaire where we would like to collect some of the fire prevention related data. The topic was discussed at the Fire Prevention Commission meeting that was held 4-5 June 2014 at the SPEK camp and training center in Padasjoki, Finland. This document is meant to be used a base for our future work and proposals for guidelines, analysis and cooperation with other commissions.

We kindly ask you to fulfill the form and send it to: ales.jug@varensem.si before March 15 2015.
