Five things to know about the distribution of the firefighters’ calendar which starts in Montluçon (Allier)

Canceled due to the health crisis last year, the firefighters have done everything possible this year to resume door-to-door distribution of their new schedule. “In the continuing health context, we will wear a mask and we will have frost on us”, details Christian Henry, treasurer of the firefighters’ association. In some places, the sale has even started, he informs.

1. First novelty, the calendar format changes

“It’s a new format, square, more original, with larger ephemeris”, describes Sébastien Chopin, the head of the friendly calendar commission.

2. Even more diverse photos this year

As for photos, it won’t be worth looking for a team photo. In order to respect barrier gestures, the firefighters have chosen to put portraits of them on certain pages.

“As usual, we will find some photos of interventions, but also images of operations against forest fires in the south of France this summer on which some of us have visited. “

3. There will be no more paper receipts

Another development, for the sake of hygiene and ecology, it is the end of paper receipts. For those who wish, the firefighters will send them a dematerialized receipt by sms or email, with a transaction number.

4. Payment by card

For the first time, the men of the fire will also be able to accept payments by credit card in order to avoid, once again, the maximum of contact.

5. How do you have your calendar at all costs?

“If people are not there when we pass, we will leave a flyer with the procedure for us to return or a QR code allowing access to the online store,” says Sébastien Chopin. Individuals will also have the means to acquire one of the 10,000 calendars available through the Facebook page of the Montluçon firefighters association.
