COVID-19 – Students on the ground - Clément Gambier (X2019)
Clément Gambier completed his Personal Development and Military Training internship within the Mobile Gendarmerie Group of Chambéry in Savoy, France.
"I did my Personal Development and Military Training internship at the Gendarmerie MobileII / 5 Group in Chambéry, in the Savoy region.
Part of the General Staff is currently detached to Guyana with a gendarmerie battle group with 8 squadrons. The staff of the Grouping therefore operated in reduced numbers and it was completely logical for me to volunteer to continue to carry out certain missions within this unit. I am currently combining online courses with at least 1 day of full presence at the Group.
I mainly carry out the group's communication missions in accordance with the national gendarmerie directives by feeding the group's social networks with the aim of informing the population via photo and video reports on the actions (and their results) carried out by the squadrons and the Gendarmerie units as a whole. This approach is part of the Gendarmerie Focus-Covid national communication plan.
In addition, my educational achievements in the BCPST (Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth Science) specialized preparatory class help me to contribute to raising awareness for soldiers of all ranks on COVID-19 and the related healthcare issues. These discussions provide a simple theoretical basis for a better understanding of the measures to be adopted in the face of the virus and ensuring the weekly monitoring of statistics related to COVID-19.
Finally, I am also involved in the management of the crisis through the design and delivery of documents (situation reports for the squadrons, various statistics, etc...).
This voluntary commitment represents a way for me to participate in the national effort and especially to honor the military status on which the School bases its values. It is also a way of thanking the soldiers of the group who welcomed me with warmth and kindness during my entire internship."
