Every year, Rega receives numerous requests for material for school essays, projects or presentations. As we unfortunately do not have the time to reply to all enquiries in detail, we hope that the following information and tips will be of help to you.
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)
What does Rega’s Operations Centre look like? How does Rega fly in the dark? Our illustrations explain it all.
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 the Swiss Samaritan Federation 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 the Swiss Samaritan Federation. If the feedback form is not returned, the material will be invoiced to the school concerned.
