"Committed to serving the community": this is the motto of this year's Journées Nationales du Réserviste (JNR ). But what does "being a reservist" actually mean?
In France, a number of reserve systems enable citizen volunteers to devote themselves, alongside their civilian lives, to missions designed to protect the French people. These include the National Guard, which comprises reservists from the armed forces, the national police force and the national gendarmerie. Among firefighters, the status of volunteer firefighter is similar to that of reservist. When you join the Reserves, you benefit from remuneration, training academics and human and professional experience in the service of the community.
Who better than our student reservists and representatives of the armed forces (land, air and navy), the national gendarmerie, the national police and the fire department to tell you more about the Reserves and give you all the information you need about their missions? They'll be waiting for you at the JNR with information stands, activities and demonstrations, and a conference on the role of the scientific gendarmerie.
It's happening Wednesday, October 4, on the Le Bourget campus, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., esplanade, building 6 (EVE).
