Review: Safe Rescue at all Highs and Lows

Successful rescue operations in extreme situations: cooperation partners THW and DLRG showed how it’s done.

A+A 2015, the international event for health and safety at work, included the première of a special show entitled “Safe Rescue at all Highs and Lows”. The event was held in cooperation with the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and the German Life Saving Association (DLRG).

"Using a diving pool and a roofed-over climbing facility, the demonstrations will feature rescue operations of accident victims in extreme situations, both above and under water,” said Birgit Horn, Director of A+A 2015 from Messe Düsseldorf. The demonstrations were running live in Hall 6 on each day of the trade fair. The focus was on the occupational safety of helpers and on appropriate personal protection equipment (e.g. fall protection).
