RESCUE AND AMBULANCE SERVICE
Around the clock. The chances of surviving a traffic accident in Austria have doubled in the last 20 years – thanks to continuous improvements to the Red Cross rescue service.
The Red Cross aid workers help people in need around the clock. More than 2,8 million times a year they respond to emergencies. They save lives – and also provide first aid for the soul. This is only made possible because over 32,000 Red Cross paramedics provide their services voluntarily. And because each year over 4,000 young Austrians choose community service for the Red Cross as an alternative to the obligatory military service.
