Air rescuers rehearse use with winch

2021-10-15T14:27:36.667Z

Emergency services from the DRF Luftrettung in Freiburg and the Black Forest and Württemberg mountain rescue teams have practiced how the injured can be rescued from inaccessible terrain by helicopter using a winch. "Such a rescue operation requires teamwork with the highest precision," explained Konstantin Muffert from DRF Luftrettung. The crews would therefore receive extensive training twice a year in order to perfect the use of the rescue hoist.

Freiburg - "Because in an emergency, every move has to be right."

According to the DRF, using a helicopter with a winch and 90 meters of rope makes sense if a rescue from the ground is not possible at all or only with a long delay and high risk - for example in mountains, swamp areas or over water.

In residential areas, for example, accidents on the roofs of tall buildings, chimneys and towers, transmitter masts and cranes could be reasons for such use.
