Last week­end @fire was able to hand over a USAR (Urban Search & Rescue) trailer with Parat­ech rescue props to the Ukrain­ian Civil Defence (Mobile Rescue Center of the State Emer­gency Service of Ukraine).

The trailer is to be used in partic­u­lar for secur­ing build­ings after (partial) collapses and to provide safety for the forces as well as for the buried victims with the loaded rescue supports.

Together with a towing vehi­cle, the trailer can be quickly brought to the site as a self-contained unit after an incident.

After the trans­fer of the trailer to Ukraine, a brief­ing on the handling and oper­a­tional tactics with the equip­ment took place by @fire instructors.

We would like to express our special thanks to the LeaveNoOneBe­hind initia­tive for the fund­ing and to the Parat­ech company for the good coop­er­a­tion in procur­ing the trailer.
