The firefight voluntary doctor belongs to this setting. The workforce of the firefight voluntary doctors is in constantly decrease. Materials and methods: it consists of an observational descriptive horizontal study. The studied population are the medical students in second year at the University of Bordeaux, the interns of GP Aquitaine and the doctors from CDOM. Through the questionnaire sent by e-mails, the principal objective was to analyze determining factor (limits and motivations) of GP to join the firefighters nowadays. The secondary objectives were to analyze the interests and knowledge of GPs and students to the activity. Results: the determining factors motivating GPs to join the firefighters seem the wish to diversify his job, keep in mind his emergency’s reflex and practice in teams. The limiting factors seem the lack of time, refusal to work at night and the fear of not having enough knowledge to deal with vital emergencies. The knowledge about the activity seems low, whether the missions or the training, the compensations or the equipment. The interest about the practice seems mixed, mostly weak. Conclusion: sessions of promotion and information seem essential to make the activity durable: theorical session by the « forum de la santé » in the university of medicine, practical session by a work experience for medical students, internship or for GP with the Continuous Professional Development.
