FRANCE 2010 Confronted by a growing social unrest, firefighters today see their field of action opening up to new challenges far from the typical job description. The firestation of Pars d’Aubervilliers responded to a part of 500,000 parisian calls in 2009. The jurisdiction of this Parisian suburb of covers six districts ranging from office building complexes to a major northbound highway a part of Paris’s Périphérique or primary highway complex. Most of these firefighters were born and raised in this region and find themselves in the middle of a powerful and rapidly growing social distress. The fires they have been prepared to fight have been replaced by a new threat. For now, fire departments must compensate for a lack of EMTs in districts stretched-thin by acting as a last medical defense in extreme situations.
