European thematic network on fire in tunnels

Objective

Following recent major accidents and in view of present and planned highly important tunnelling activities, a lot of research efforts and design activities are currently being undertaken on the issue of fire safety for road, rail and metro tunnels. The Thematic Network "FIT - Fire in Tunnels" essentially seeks to contribute to the dissemination of up-to-date knowledge gained from such on-going (EC and national) RTD projects and current practices. FIT gathers all relevant stakeholders; in particular the network is composed of 33 members representing road authorities, tunnel owners, designers, contractors, emergency brigades and research institutes. Deliverables of FIT include, amongst other things, the publication of consensus recommendations on design fires, guidelines for fire- safe design, and the definition of best practices for tunnel authorities and fire emergency services on prevention & training, accident management and fire emergency operations.
