European Day of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism

Our thoughts are with you. So is our work...


On the European Day of Remembrance of Victims of Terrorism, we commit to continue doing our small part to reduce the number of victims of terrorist attacks.

Less than 6 months ago, we marched in Brussels in honour of victims and in support of emergency services. Thank you to all those who joined us to demand with one voice to #MakeEUSafe.

How can we advance and increase public safety in times of emergency? In our EENA members workshop, rescuers from across the EU agreed that there are ways: modern public warning systems, effective use of social media in crises and other concrete steps towards a safer EU.

Our thoughts are with you and so is our work.
