Welcome to the new Captain of le Marais Fire Station. We are honoured to share with you an exceptional event that took place in the gardens of the magnificent Hotel de Soubise, Headquarters of The French National Archives. A lucky few were privileged to witness the ceremonial transfer of command of authority held at the Archives Nationales in Paris on 9 June 2023 by Lieutenant-Colonel Ronan Perfetta, for the change of command between fire chief Quentin Hemery and fire chief Nicolas Lux of the 11th Company Paris Fire and Rescue.
This event takes place once every 2 years in this exceptional historic location.
