A physical meeting is currently planned for October this year, in Hungary, if the worldwide travel restrictions allow for it. The  2020 meeting had to be postponed  because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting will be held in English and German.

Because of the current restrictions due to the corona virus the 23rd meeting of the Commission History of Fire Services and CTIF, Museums and Documentation was arranged  as an online meeting on February 27th. The Hungarian National Committee kindly provided the technical requirements.

The CTIF Commission of History of Fire Services and CTIF, Museums and Documentation held its online meeting in the morning on 26th February.

There were 18 participant countries at the meeting, containing 3 new member countries: Belarus, Russia and Greece. Milan Dubravac, President of the CTIF and Dr. László Bérczi, Hungarian Vice-President also participated at the meeting. The Commission discussed the points of the agenda chaired by Gerald Schimpf.
