Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Dutch Fire Service, the Dutch Burns Foundation and the Fire Service Academy, we are very pleased to invite you to attend the 4th International Safety Education Seminar. After a very successful seminar in Sweden two years ago, we warmly welcome you to Arnhem, The Netherlands on the 7th and 8th of June 2017.

This year’s theme is: Reaching out, how to touch people with Fire Safety. Reaching out, that is what we do. But do we really touch people for Fire Safety? Do we reach our goals? This seminar is particularly interesting for anyone working with fire safety. It provides you with instruments to enhance skills, share experiences and share knowledge with colleagues from other countries.

Many developments negatively affect the fire safety of the community. This occurs not only in the Netherlands, but also in other European countries. A few examples are the aging of the population, the increasing multicultural society and the arrival of refugees.

As our target groups match, it is good to share and discuss these developments, the associated risks and solutions and our experiences. Many of us have several years of experience with Community Fire Safety. It is important that we can measure the quality and impact of our work in order to identify the activities that are the most effective.

During this two day seminar you listen to renowned speakers, learn about the latest research and perspectives and be exposed to the most up-to-date information in the field of fire safety. Besides that, there is a great social event and network dinner in an unique atmosphere.

We hope you will take advantage of the exciting educational and network opportunities that the International Safety Education Seminar 2017 offers you. Aphoristic we do our utmost best to make your attendance memorable.

Looking forward to meeting you!
Kind regards,


Rene HagenRené Hagen
