Emergency Services

1971 | Highway Emergency
The highways built after the war had no emergency call system. Siegfried Steiger convinced Federal Transport Minister Georg Leber of the preservation and the necessary repopulation with modern emergency telephones. In addition, starting in 1973, all new highways were equipped again with stationary emergency telephones from the beginning.

 

1971 | Emergency Service

Quick rescue is important - if possible on the way to the hospital. The transport of the injured was usually only with ambulances without medical equipment and without supervising paramedics. Therefore, the Björn Steiger Foundation handed each state an ambulance with full medical equipment. In many states it was the first ambulance ever. This was the birth of the emergency service in the Federal Republic.

Air Rescue Services

1972 | State Air Rescue

The German government was unable to finance the rescue helicopters promised for the greater area Frankfurt and the ADAC also revised its financing commitment. From the proceeds of a charity record and by pledging the home of the family Steiger, the foundation bought the rescue helicopter Christoph 2 on thier own and handed it over to the Federal Ministry of the Interior. One of the most difficult crises at the beginning of civilian air rescue was overcome.

 

1972 | Civil Air Rescue

The nationwide funding of air rescue was not feasible for the federal government. Therefore, the foundation provided the development and financing of the first civilian air rescue organization in Germany: DRF - Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht (German Rescue Air Force).

Emergency Pattern

1973 | Rescue Model
The foundation launched the self-financed rescue model Rems-Murr. As part of this scientific structural analysis, a complete personnel and material calculation for a financially viable emergency service was carried out for the first time. In 1974, the model is taken over by the district council and later as a model for nationwide emergency relief. The calculated values at that time are valid until today. For the first time in Europe, this project has created comprehensive emergency assistance with a central rescue coordination center.

 

1973 | Emergency Call 110/112
In early 1973, the foundation introduced the emergency numbers 110/112 in all local networks of the German Federal Post Office in the former administrative district of Nordwürttemberg. However, the nationwide introduction fails first. In September 1973, the introduction of the emergency call was decided at the meeting of the Prime Minister with the Federal Chancellor. The emergency numbers 110 for police and 112 for fire department and ambulance service existed in Germany since 1956 - but only a few major cities had switched them.

1974 | Fast Rescue
In the early 70's, seriously injured, trapped accident victims often had to wait for a long time for their salvage, because the heavy rescue vehicles of the fire department came too late or did not even came to the accident site. In order to be able to salvage trapped victims faster, together with the Stuttgart fire department the foundation developed  an all-terrain SBW - Schnellbergungswagen (fast rescue vehicle). They financed more than ten of these vehicles. Today, the successors VRW - Vorrüstwagen are in use worldwide.

 

1974 | Baby Ambulance
Until 1974, the Federal Republic had the highest infant mortality of all industrialized nations. The reason was the still practiced separation of maternity and pediatric hospitals. Problematic transports without medical care often led to long-term consequences or even deaths. Therefore, the Björn Steiger Foundation developed and financed the first baby ambulance with integrated transport incubator. The infant mortality rate in the maternity hospitals around Stuttgart fell by almost 70% in the first year. A total of 14 baby ambulance vehicles were funded.

 

1975 | Telematics Ambulance
Although the emergency medical system quickly brought patients to the emergency department, it was initially time-consuming to compile patient data - treatment often began with delay. To gain time, the foundation developed the first telematics ambulance, from which patient data could be transmitted directly to the clinic.
