It is one of the oldest stations of the DRF Luftrettung and the location for Christoph 42. The Rendsburg air rescue station, which moved in July 2020 and has since moved to its new home at Schachtholm airfield.
Today there were three good reasons to celebrate the air rescuers. In 2020 the station celebrated its 45th birthday and the state-of-the-art H145 was put into service in time for the move in July.
Health Minister Dr. Heiner Garg emphasized the importance of Christoph 42: “He is the central helicopter for the whole of Schleswig-Holstein.” The generation change in the helicopter “is a milestone” at a “new and familiar location”.
Dr. Krystian Pracz, Chairman of the Board of Directors of DRF Luftrettung, thanked them for the broad support: “This station was supported by everyone: the state, the district, the municipalities, the ground-based rescue workers, control centers, fire brigades and the police.” What is also important is the view to look forward and ask yourself: “How can I get even more out of what is already there.”
