Euro NCAP launches pan-European rescue app
Vehicle testing specialists Euro NCAP have launched Euro Rescue, a pan-European app for accident rescue professionals. In collaboration with OEMs, Euro Rescue provides free, downloadable rescue sheets for most vehicle models. This will help rescuers get people out of accident vehicles quicker, for example by pointing out the locations of airbags and other components.
However, the app will do more than facilitate the rescue of the persons in the car, it will also help create a safer environment around collision sites. The app is timely, says Euro NCAP, because cars are becoming increasingly complex, with an ever wider array of motorisations. This makes it harder for rescue workers to know which rescue operations are or aren't safe to perform.
Euro Rescue is available for free for both Android and iOS. It works both online and offline.
