You want to save your mate who is in danger? Marseille’s emergency medical services  have put together a First aid instruction video… in rap…in collaboration with local rapper Jean-Marie of CF Clan NORD… Surreal result, but kinda useful if you are planning to live dangerously while in town.

Just so you know, in the event of any emergency in France you can call the pompiers – the firemen. Calling 18 or the European-wide emergency number (112) will summon a truckload of extremely capable – not to mention fit and frequently hunky – fire fighters who are fully equipped to deal with a range of medical emergencies ranging from drug overdoses to childbirth. (The only problem is that you may not be in a position to really appreciate this bevy of uniformed manhood.)
