The presidents of three firefighter organizations signed a column in the JDD, asking that the part of the tax on insurance which finances the departmental fire and rescue services be doubled. “Let’s not abandon our soldiers of fire, who have become soldiers of life, today soldiers of the climate”, they write. the share of the tax on insurance which finances the departmental fire and rescue services (Sdis) is doubled, in a forum published on the site of the Sunday newspaper. “After a struggle at all times and in all places for almost two months, the firefighters and all the civil security forces have been on the verge of breaking up”, write the presidents of three firefighter organizations, including the National Federation of Firefighters of France (FNSPF) .Faced with “climate change (which) will be long-term and hit us all harder and harder”, “the means must increase, it’s a certainty”, they warn. “N’ let’s not abandon our firefighters” The authors of the forum recommend “reviewing the distribution key” of the special tax on insurance agreements (TSCA) and to double the share paid to the Sdis, of which it constitutes “one of the important aspects of financing”. This measure must be discussed “immediately, within the framework of the draft finance law for 2023”, urge the signatories. “By putting their lives at risk to protect people and property, firefighters and more broadly civil security actors allow insurance companies to achieve a significant avoidance rate, and therefore significant savings”, they argue. “Let’s not abandon our soldiers of fire, who have become soldiers of life, today soldiers of the climate, as soon as the summer is over and the cameras turned to other back-to-school subjects “, concludes the forum.
