The CTIF Fire prevention commission was founded in 2001 in order to promote fire prevention activities among the CTIF community and wider. One of the mayor commission goals is to examine fire safety in building, analyze general fire safety rules, regulations and codes and promote fire safety culture in order to reduce fire deaths, injuries and fire damages.
The CTIF Fire prevention commission is trying to encourage and promote the cooperation between fire services, fire prevention associations, insurances and governmental bodies around the world, representing 36 different countries via CTIF.
At the moment Fire prevention commission is working on two guidelines. First one is about carbon monoxide risks and prevention measures in relation to firefighter’s activities and building occupants. Second guideline deals with fire evacuation drills and recommendations for building owners.
Commission meeting scheduled for June 2014 will focus on guidelines, fire risk assessments, fire investigations and fire risks related to EPF facades. In all subjects the commission wants to focus primarily on risks and fire prevention measures.

The CTIF Commission for "Extrication and New Technology" is trying to encourage and promote the cooperation between fire services and other emergency services around the world, representing 36 different countries via CTIF.
In the next few years, the commission wants to focus primarily on the development and exchange of “best practices” regarding extrication techniques for vehicles on alternative energy (Hydrogen, Electric, CNG, LNG, Li ION batteries, Super Capacitors etc)..
Besides exchanging experience, the commission also wants to draw up standard operational procedures regarding extrication of busses, trains and airplanes.
The commission will work within the ‘ISO’ (International Organization for Standardization) to be able to internationally harmonize information and training for the rescue services in the field.
If we can share our experiences on the international level, this will help us all one step further to guarantee the security of our citizens and emergency workers. The more we can learn from each other, the better.
