You also have the possibility of going on a guided tour of the Rega Centre or of one of our helicopter bases. This is a great opportunity to take some photos and perhaps even to ask a member of Rega’s staff a question or two in person.
If you would like to register on a guided tour, you can do so by calling tel. +41 44 654 32 06 (Tuesday to Thursday, 10.00 am – 12 noon & 2.00 – 5.00pm)
First aid in schools
According to projections by the Swiss Council for Accident Prevention (BFU), approximately 49,000 schoolchildren are injured in Swiss schools every year. Even simple first-aid measures can do much to prevent serious consequences or even to save lives.
Rega and Samariter Schweiz have therefore launched the programme, "Retten ist KLASSE – Erste Hilfe an Schulen". The programme, which is currently only available in German, is free of charge and is aimed both at teachers and at schoolchildren aged 12 and over.
The schools are provided with the necessary material (MiniAnne set and bandaging material). In return, they are required to complete and return the feedback form to Samariter Schweiz. If the feedback form is not returned, the material will be invoiced to the school concerned.
