Fighting the conflagrations that are an inevitable part of life in the city, fireman put their lives on the line whenever they are called into service. It is without question one of the riskiest and most perilous professions in the world. But the fireman of the Batallion de Marins-Pompiers de Marseille (BMPM) are in a class by themselves. An elite unit under the jurisdiction of the Marine Nationale, their missions involve more than the daily danger that is part of the norm for an urban firefighting unit. The BMPM's two hundred strong force of men and women are called on a daily basis not only to battle blazes in the buildings, factories and warehouses of Marseille, but are ready to intervene when there are fires at sea and to deal with the deadly forest fires that the summer heat brings.
