AIR RESCUE SERVICE ON THE FEDERAL GERMAN MOTORWAYS

LUFTRETTUNGSDIENST AUF DER BAB

The air rescue service is still being developed. The bringing of doctors and medical supplies to the scene of an accident and the removal of the casualties by helicopter is far superior to the same operations carried out by vehicular transport. The conditions for the use of helicopters and their requirements are discussed. Particular reference is made to the costs of a helicopter rescue service and to different types of helicopters and their capacity. One of the main problems is achieving immediate availability of helicopter and doctor. Ways of improving the rescue service with the means currently available are discussed. /TRRL/
