How to raise the alarm correctly
We are currently receiving numerous questions from patrons regarding Rega’s activities in connection with coronavirus. You can find our answers to the most frequently asked questions here.
Raising the alarm correctly and observing a few basic principles help the Rega crews in their work and contribute to the rescue mission running smoothly and thus the patient receiving swift medical attention.
With the Rega app, you can alert the Rega Operations Centre with a single swipe and your position coordinates are automatically transmitted. This can save valuable time in an emergency.
The Rega drone can autonomously scan search areas and is equipped with cutting-edge technology. In future, Rega will thus have at its disposal an additional device to help it search for people in distress.
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.
