[electronic translation] To 31.12.2013, the DRF Air Rescue has withdrawn from Denmark. With the commissioning of the first Danish rescue helicopter in Ringsted in 2010, the DRF Air Rescue had done together with Falck A / S key construction work for the air rescue in the neighboring country. The country of Denmark will expand this now as designed in-house on. The Ringsted station was initially operated by the Falck DRF Luftambulance A / S, a merger of the DRF air rescue and the Danish rescue service operator Falck A / S, as a pilot project. The country of Denmark is now planning another helicopter stations. This is the primary goal of the Falck DRF Luftambulance A / S, the implementation of air rescue, met. “We pull back from Denmark, because we continue to focus our efforts on the air rescue in Germany and do not want to expand our operational activities abroad. Our stationed in Niebüll rescue helicopter we do of course continue in collaboration with Falck A / S cross-border operations, “explains Steffen Lutz, Chief Executive of the DRF Air Rescue.
The DRF Air Rescue begins at 30 locations in Germany and Austria for the emergency rescue and for urgent transport of intensive care patients between clinics at eight stations even around the clock. Ambulance aircraft are used for the worldwide repatriation of patients. So far, the pilots, doctors and paramedics of the DRF Air Rescue provide around 700,000 applications.
