Fires in the Southeast: mobilisation of the Red Cross
several violent fires have been raging in Haute-Corse, in the Bouches du Rhône, Vaucluse and especially in the Var, first at Croix-Valmer and then at Bormes Les Mimosas.
These forest fires destroyed nearly 7,000 hectares and led to the evacuation of thousands of people. At the height of the mobilization, more than 2,200 firefighters were fighting the flames.
On Monday evening, a dozen of volunteers from the French Red Cross were mobilized in Mirabeau to provide shelter for the evacuees. The welcoming centre remained open to welcome and supply the fire brigade.
On Wednesday evening, several teams of volunteers from Marseille and Aix-en-Provence were also hired to strengthen the Var Delegation and an Emergency Accommodation Centre was set up in Martigues.
The Red Cross has deployed trailers containing the necessary equipment to set up emergency shelters, such as camp beds or indoor tents to create privacy for families.
Lots of hospitality for those involved have also been set up. The equipment required for the French Red Cross response to crisis situations is pre-positioned in the department to enable rapid deployment,"says Gérald Vallez, Territorial Director of Emergency and First Aid at the Metropolitan Territorial Delegation of Aix-Marseille Provence.
The French Red Cross launches its Global Youth Health Pact
The ambition of the French Red Cross is to work alongside vulnerable and vulnerable people throughout their life course, in all territories. The accompaniment towards global health (physical, mental, emotional) is the common theme of all our actions.
Witnessing all forms of vulnerabilities and very different health problems, our association has a diverse range of institutions and services for children and young people. In addition, our 19 Regional Institutes of Health and Social Training (IRFSS) each year welcome more than 10,000 students under 30 years of age in initial training and pre-qualification in health and social services.
The French Red Cross can count on the commitment of 13,000 young volunteers under 30 years of age, which corresponds to 21% of the volunteer workforce (they represent 7% of elected representatives). Finally, it welcomes more than 400 volunteers in civic service every year.
The report addresses different dimensions of young people's lives (nutrition, addictions, the influence of social networks, relational and sexual life, etc.) and proposes a global vision of these societal problems.
Through the presentation of 7 life trajectories, it also gives voice to young people in situations of distress and vulnerability that the Red Cross accompanies on a daily basis: young people in situations of disability, precariousness, social exclusion, addiction, unaccompanied minors, young mothers, beneficiaries who have become volunteers or volunteers in civic service...

The App that saves
The French Red Cross is launching the new version of its "Appli qui Sauve", a free mobile application that allows you to learn or refresh your knowledge of first aid procedures, understand how to prepare for disasters and test yourself in a fun way.
For anyone who wants to know how to react in a crisis situation, it has just been completely redesigned to offer even more clearly and intuitively organised content. Available for iOS and Android operating systems. The Appli which saves ensures compatibility with the largest number of terminals and is a real success with more than 600,000 users.
