Car Fleet

The Luxembourg Red Cross’s rescue dog section owns a multi-functional car fleet suitable for a variety of situations :

 

Intervention vehicles :

On-call vehicle

The on-call vehicle is available for the dog handler or coordinator on-duty. In case of emergency, the handler or coordinator drives straight to the site and prepares the field for arriving teams.

This vehicle is equipped with topographical maps, communication equipment, first-aid kits, and signaling equipment.

 

 

Since the majority of our interventions occur in woods or places that are difficult to access, our all-terrain vehicle is a necessity. One of the vehicle’s advantages is that the emergency equipment can be used immediately and an injured person can be evacuated to a place more accessible to ambulances.
