Both worked as ambulance drivers in a Bagnolais company. "In this job, you never know when the day is going to end. We work nights, weekends… We wanted a change, we were tired of the miles.

We knocked on all the doors to get help. Initiative Gard followed us, a Bagnolese bank also." In March, the couple spent two weeks behind the counter with the Goupille brothers.
