The new Head of Corps has four priorities in his missions:

  • maintain the path laid down by his predecessors who led the Corps on the paths of excellence and innovation;
  • strengthen the listening of the staff and the quality of the human relations;
  • to lay the foundations of the Corps of Firemen of tomorrow, as well on the level of the personnel as that of the barracks;
  • pursue a thoughtful modernity policy (with, for example, the exploitation of the future Event Management and Emergency Operations Management Center or the use of drones at the intervention sites ….) by adapting the know-how make current while respecting military traditions.
