In the emergency and rescue services, speed is obviously very important, but so too is having properly qualified and equipped personnel.
Let’s talk about car crashes for a moment. In most developed countries, the number road fatalities per year has declined over recent years, but road accidents are still among the most common causes of serious and fatal injuries. Thankfully, auto manufacturers are constantly developing ever more ingenious technologies to improve safety. But today’s advanced automotive technology can pose challenges for emergency rescue personnel, who need to be able to swiftly and safety deal with high-strength materials, active safety systems and alternative drive systems when attending accidents. That’s not always easy, but the good news is that digital rescue data sheets on every vehicle type have been specially developed to help rescue personnel in their hour of need. Rescue personnel can retrieve these sheets while en route and thus arrive at the scene fully informed and with the right equipment on hand.
These are just some of the technologies that enable emergency rescue professionals to arrive at the scene of accidents more quickly and better equipped. Rescue professionals, manufacturers of vehicles and medical equipment, and paramedics will be presenting the latest and greatest of these in Hall 26 and on the open-air site at INTERSCHUTZ 2015.
