Today was my last working day as a ‘Zivi’. So I’ve more or less successfully fullfilled my alternative civilian service at Red Cross in Klagenfurt (9 months).
Here some statistical data of the time as a real ambulance officer (9 months minus 2 months of education):
I’ve been working about 1448 h in this 7 months. I’ve got 55 KTW-services (for moving sick persons, I’m the co-driver), 49 BKTW-services (it’s a service for people who can go, I’m the driver), 1 BT-service (for people who are sitting in a wheelchair – it’s nearly the same as KTW, I’m the co-driver), 4 RTW-services (for emergencies, I’m the co-driver), 2 ambulance services and now I’m going to enjoy 12 holidays.
Some impressions shot with my mobile-phone:
The theoretical education in Cap Wörth:
A ski-accident on 10th of January 2008:
We got an emergency to a disabled person on the ski piste in Bodental (RTW Ferlach). But the person was injured so bad that Alpin1 (from Patergassen) had to hospitalise the casualty to LKH Klagenfurt. But it was quite funny to cruise on the ski piste.
A car-accident (KTW; Keutschacher Straße Höhe Keutschach) on 2nd of July 08:
We were on the way back from Plescherken/Keutschach and we came accidentally to a head-on collision of a car and a bus (the bus tried to outran a tractor). The police was already in situ and the fire brigade arrived a few minutes later. About 10 minutes later, the rescue helicopter C11 arrived and touched down on the street. While we were doing our best, the fire brigade demounted the car to get the incarcerated casualty out of the car. The C11-crew hospitalised the disabled person to the UKH in Klagenfurt.
