Whether for a hiking trail or a via ferrata – being out and about in Alpine terrain demands a high degree of self-responsibility and a keen awareness of potential dangers. We show you how prudent planning can help prevent accidents from happening in the mountains.
In our current "1414" magazine, we take you on a demanding night mission using the rescue hoist and also tell you about Rega’s new night vision goggles.
Our patrons keep us in the air and enable us to help more than 11,000 people every year.
Have you moved and want to inform us of your change of address? Have you had an addition to your family? Or would you like to switch your patronage from Individual to Couple? You can use our online forms to submit your request easily and at any time.
The Da Vinci helicopter at the mountain Rega bases has been performing invaluable services. In our video, base manager and Rega pilot Giorgio Faustinelli explains why this rescue helicopter is particularly well suited to mountainous regions, what the cable cutter is for, and why there are several antennae mounted on the tail boom.
The Operations Centre is located in the Rega Centre at Zurich Airport. Here emergency calls are received around the clock from within Switzerland and abroad, and more than 17,000 rescue missions are organised each year.
