On June 21, 2012, the 130th anniversary of the French Firefighter Federation, FNSPF, a partnership agreement was signed by the French carmaker, represented by Stephen Norman, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing and Communications at Renault, and Colonel Eric Faure, Chairman of the FNSPF. The partnership gives official form to a long-standing relationship between these two major players in sustainable mobility.
Renault has long maintained strong ties with the firefighting and emergency services. Besides working on a number of technical projects, the French manufacturer has, for example, donated vehicles to firefighters for vehicle extrication training. More recently, Renault provided firefighters with ten electric vehicles used for experimenting and standardizing post-accident interventions.
Commenting, Stephen Norman, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing and Communications at Renault, said: “ The partnership with the FNSPF is yet another example of Renault’s commitment as a good corporate citizen. Sustainable mobility for all also goes hand in hand with safety. Renault shares the same ambition as firefighters, namely to train, inform, prevent and protect. The launch of electric vehicles proves that the automobile more than ever is a source of progress for mankind .”
Colonel Eric Faure, Chairman of the FNSPF, added: “ I welcome this very first official partnership between French firefighters and Renault. It was informed by common values of good citizenship, chief among which is sustainable development. Renault’s ‘sustainable mobility’ policy ties in with the key values of French firefighters. The agreement also reflects the ambition to further improve the protection of our fellow citizens, with the FNSPF proposing to share all the expertise of its firefighters with Renault ”.
More specifically, the agreement will focus on “informing, preventing, protecting, correcting and saving” and aims to showcase and intensify initiatives that have already been co-launched by Renault and the FNSPF.
