Video on the Rega base in Zweisimmen
Rega's Zweisimmen helicopter base nestles in the mountains of the Obersimmental valley. Its location in the heart of a holiday region means that the crew from the Zweisimmen base are frequently called out to assist injured sports enthusiasts. In our base portrait, you can find out more about «Rega 14».
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.
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.
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.
