The First Aid Convention in Europe (FACE) is an annual European Red Cross/Red Crescent event, which has taken place in different countries across Europe since 1987.
It brings together Red Cross / Red Crescent National Societies from across Europe to share ideas, share first aid practices and to compete in a European Competition.
These countries compete in a team first aid competition. The competition consists of a number of working stations where the team members have to deal with real-life scenarios as they would when they volunteer with their Red Cross / Red Crescent Society.
Each scene has a number of “casualties” who have realistic-looking injuries. The injuries are crafted by a team of casualty simulators and look very life-like.
The team is marked on their first aid treatment, their psychological care of the patient, their management of the scene and other related matters.
