Steffen Lutz, DRF gm, says: "On average the Team DRF crews were on mission 107 times a day." He
explains: "One main reason for the increase in the mission numbers is to be found in the structural changes that the German health system is undergoing currently.
says that health system costs have to be cut but, at the same time, comprehensive patient care has to be assured."The Team DRF
makes an important contribution to making air rescue more efficient."More than 120 dispatch centres in Germany have so far been equipped with the flight-following system 'Rescue Track' which makes it possible to verify a helicopter's position and mission status at one glance and at all times.Lutz
says the advantages of the technology means patients, especially in regions weak in infrastructure, profit from a more efficient and faster disposition of the helicopters.
