The Rega drone

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.


At your service around the clock

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.


«And all of a sudden my heart stopped beating»

Any place, any time. Rega provides swift medical assistance in an emergency. In the new patronage promotion campaign, four people who have received such help talk about their experience. Listen to their stories and find out why they are truly thankful that Rega exists.
