112 AWARDS: Remarkable Rescue Award

Am 10. April 2019 erhielt Notruf NÖ in Dubrovnik (Kroatien) im Rahmen einer feierlichen Veranstaltung den „112 Award“ für einer aussergewöhnliche Rettungsaktion verliehen.

Diese „112-Awards“ zeichnen „moderne Helden“ aus. Von unglaublichen Rettungsaktionen von Bürgern und Rettungsdiensten über Innovationen im Bereich der öffentlichen Sicherheit bis hin zum faktischen Einsatz von neuen Technologien belohnt die European Emergency Number Association diejenigen, die über das erwartete Maß hinausgehen, um Menschen in Gefahr zu helfen.

112 Award

 

Aus dem Originaltext der Verleihung:

Paraglider Andreas Gremmel crashed in a remote, alpine area of Austria. He was injured, could not describe where he was, and his mobile reception was very weak. Emergency services tried to call Andreas back to get more information, but they couldn’t connect. Thankfully, the Notruf emergency control room uses Advanced Mobile Location (AML). AML is a lifesaving technology which uses your smartphone location services to let emergency services know where to find you when you dial the emergency number. The technology needs to be activated on a country per country basis. Thanks to AML, the Notruf team could locate Andreas within a 6 metre radius and the rescue mission could be immediately launched. A helicopter and a Mountain Rescue Service crew were alerted and Andreas was rescued to safety within just 50 minutes.

The award was handed by paraglider Andreas Gremmel, who was rescued by the team.
