Visitors to Bulmedica / Buldental were surprised by the volunteers from the Bulgarian Red Cross National Disaster Response Team (NDRT), who demonstrated alpine rescue and transportation of victims with a stretcher.
Dr. Nikola Nikolov from the BRC Department of Management explained what exactly happened at the demonstration. "The Alpine approach to transportation with a stretcher is used by our rescuers in different situations. The last urgent incident that activated our NDRT team was with an injured man in a lift shaft. No one but our team could handle such a problem, "said Dr. Nikolov.
The demonstration for visitors to the medical exhibition was fascinating and showed the successful implementation of perfect synchronization by the professionally trained team. The volunteers did their job well and took out an injured person by an alpine method. NDRT members reminded that they needed more volunteers. Everybody is welcome after an introduction in detail with their work on the website of the Bulgarian Red Cross.
The second BRC demonstration was from members of the Youth Emergency Team (YET) of the Bulgarian Red Cross. They demonstrated first aid to victims of disaster.
