Galeries Lafayette group and the Moulin-Houzé family support the Paris Fire Brigade
After the dramatic fire that devastated Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on the night of April 15th, Galeries Lafayette group and the Moulin-Houzé family have decided to support the Paris Fire Brigade. They commend the unrivalled bravery and devotion demonstrated by the firemen in the capital over the last few months, and donate one million euros to the brigade.
This donation is a mark of the group’s deep respect for the outstanding daily commitment of the Paris Fire Brigade and their continued long-standing relationship. The Galeries Lafayette has had links with the Paris Fire Brigade since 1924, when a permanent brigade took up quarters at the group’s flagship store on Boulevard Haussmann. Today, more than 40 firemen ensure the safety of the store’s 37 million annual visitors.
