FIREFIGHTERS IN THE HEART OF DANGER: KICK-OFF

Provence has the hottest, driest summers in France. Day after day, the sun shines over the exceptionally dry forests. The unique landscape is under threat from a phenomenon that is sometimes natural but often manmade – fire.

Fire-fighters have succeeded in putting in place a system to keep fires under control. Fire engines are placed at strategic points and teams of fire-fighters are ready for action. For ten years, there are have been few fires…but this year, they’re back with a vengeance.

Three months before the summer season, the area’s fire-fighters are preparing. They go through intensive training sessions on land, in the sea and in the skies.
