Mission & budget


Who is EENA?

EENA, the European Emergency Number Association, is a non-governmental organisation based in Brussels, with the mission to contribute to improving the safety and security of people.


Our mission: To improve the safety and security of the people.


What is our vision?

Our vision is that every citizen can access emergency services and receive the appropriate information and care during an emergency or a disaster. To that end, we want to be the organisation in the sector driving change and making an impact. What we do, we do it for the people we serve, and we never forget it. We intend to be a highly effective, efficient and fast-moving organisation, trusted and credible for our actions, intentions and results. We want the people working for and with us to be inspired to drive change, and to effectively do it. We want anyone in this field to know that they can rely on us, we want them to feel they are part of a community that looks forward and gets things done. We don’t settle for anything less than excellence in what we do.


What do we believe in?

  In transparency We advocate transparency, and we put it in practice everyday
by telling what we do. We have nothing to hide, and we don’t hide anything. 
We are registered in the EU transparency register, which we believe should be mandatory.

  In integrity We work with ethics above all, we stay true to our vision,
we are aware of our responsibilities. We are incorruptible.

  In people We believe in being a family-like community of people
enthusiastically working together for people.

  In change Every problem has a solution so we think outside the box;
we embrace new ways of thinking and working. The only constant is the "change";
maintaining the status quo is actually going backwards.

  In getting things done, We tell what we do and we do what we tell. We provide
tangible results and make an impact. If we know we can’t get it done, we don’t do it.


And how do we do that?

We serve as a discussion platform for all stakeholders in the emergency services field: public authorities & emergency services, decision makers, researchers, associations and solution providers.


So, who are the EENA Members?

The EENA memberships include more than 1300 emergency services representatives from over 80 countries world-wide, 90 solution providers, 11 international associations/organisations, more than 200 Members of the European Parliament and more than 90 researchers.
