Fire safety in all buildings is a critical topic, but fire protection in historical buildings is also of great cultural importance. Fire and the consequential damage can result in monetary losses that run into the tens of millions of Euros and the loss of irreplaceable historical artefacts. Restoring these damaged buildings and items can be very costly and sometimes impossible. In the light of this perspective, has been carried out an international project in order to develop a competency-based training module.


The EU Erasmus+ Project titled as “Fire Protection Practices and Competence-Based Training in Historical Buildings (Protecting People and Cultural Heritage)” (2017-1-TR01-KA202-045607) has been conducted in the leadership of Karabuk Provincial Disaster & Emergency Directorate. This project has a vision about cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices (Key Action 2) and it has been funded by European Union Erasmus+ Program (Along with Karabuk AFAD, Karabuk University (Turkey), Safranbolu Municipality (Turkey), UNICAM University (Italy), Frederiksborg Brand Og Redning (Danimarka) and SZPV (Slovenya). In this context, will be shared also intellectual outputs and results of this project by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Salvatore SANTUCCIO .
