Safe Rescue Demonstrations Featured Daily in A+A's Hall 6

Rescue demonstrations will take place in Hall 6 each day of the trade fair. The focus will be on the occupational safety of the rescuers and on appropriate personal protection equipment, including fall protection gear.

A+A 2015, International Trade Fair with Congress for Safety, Security and Health at Work, will feature a brand-new show titled "Safe Rescue Operations from Heights and Depths." The special show will be held in cooperation with the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW). It is a Federal agency that belongs to the department of the Federal Ministry of the Interior; 99 percent of the THW members work on a voluntary basis.

Rescue demonstrations will take place in Hall 6 each day of the trade fair. The focus will be on the occupational safety of the rescuers and on appropriate personal protection equipment, including fall protection gear.

"Using a diving pool and a covered climbing facility, the demonstrations will feature rescue operations of accident victims in extreme situations, both above and under water," said Birgit Horn, director of A+A 2015.

The event will take place Oct. 27-30 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
