Successful rescue operations in extreme situations: cooperation partners THW and DLRG show how it’s done – in Hall 6 J81.
A+A 2017, the international event for health and safety at work, will include once again the special show entitled “Safe Rescue at all Highs and Lows”. The event will be 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,” says Birgit Horn, Director of A+A 2017 from Messe Düsseldorf. The demonstrations will be running live in Hall 6 on each day of the trade fair. The focus will be on the occupational safety of helpers and on appropriate personal protection equipment (e.g. fall protection).
