Euralarm’s “year of change” outlined in Annual Report 2018-2019

Euralarm has released its Annual Report for 2018-2019. The period is described as “a year of change” for the organisation. With a new president, Board, general director and section leaders in place and the final integration of the Extinguishing Section in the overall structure, the association is now “ready to move forwards” into the future. 

The Annual Report covers the period between the General Assemblies of the association and follows the structure of Euralarm, with every section and Technical Committee of the association summarising their activities over the previous year and, where appropriate, providing forecasts and details of plans for the future.

A running theme of the document is Euralarm’s work on building strategic alliances. Throughout the Annual Report, the activities of the Euralarm sections underline the importance and necessity of co-operation in the fire safety and security business. Such co-operation ensures that Euralarm’s voice is heard in Brussels both on the political and the standardisation side of the equation.

New technologies, changes in the macroeconomic environment, the new EU Parliament and the reshaping of the international landscape will afford Euralarm both challenges and opportunities. Set against this background, it’s important for Euralarm to generate far-reaching acknowledgement of what it does among European politicians and policy-makers and to keep these and other relevant stakeholders involved in the industry.

Across 2018-2019, there has been an ongoing growth in membership for Euralarm with Eaton Electrical Products and Halma plc joining as new members of the Fire Section. This continuous growth, in line with the trend of the previous years, is “a sign of trust” in Euralarm, its organisation, vision and strategy, all of which are detailed in the Annual Report.
