The Rescue Card is recognised internationally. Developed by the ADAC (German Automobile Association) and the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry), it facilitates the rescue of accident victims from a vehicle. It contains vehicle-specific diagrams with all rescue-relevant information: model, model series and year of manufacture, special details about the bodywork and vehicle design, location of the airbags and the battery, as well as specific information on the alternative drive types.
Reliable protection systems are undoubtedly among the most important equipment of modern vehicles. However, they pose a stiff challenge to rescue services in an emergency. If people are trapped in a vehicle following an accident, several things need to be ascertained. Where to position the hydraulic cutters and spreaders? Where are the non-deployed airbags, tanks or electrical lines that could endanger rescuers and occupants? The Rescue Card provides this information and can therefore save time and lives during rescue operations.
