18th June 2019: REVIVE Conference: Identifying good practice in emergency response in Europe

  • June 18, 2019

Tuesday 18th June 2019, 13.30-18.00
Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, Brussels

Around 135.000 people suffered a life-changing, serious injury on Europe’s roads in 2014, according to European Commission data. Improvements in emergency response can help prevent deaths and life-changing injuries in road collisions. However, emergency response has not been getting the fair share of attention in terms of research, best practice exchange and measures in the European Union.

The aim of the REVIVE project is to map Emergency Medical Service (EMS) and Rescue and Fire Service (RFS) practices in the EU28 and raise the profile of both EMS and RFS on the national and European political agendas. The REVIVE project aims at improving post-crash care provided by EMS and RFS in order to mitigate the consequences of road collisions.

The REVIVE conference brought together road safety practitioners and legislators, and those working in the fire and rescue and emergency medical systems. It provided an opportunity to learn more about the work of the REVIVE project and to discuss good practice in the emergency response across Europe.
