First Responder Fund
Supporting charities involved in first aid (training courses), mountain rescue first responder and volunteer fire brigade & rescue organisations I am personally involved in.
The station crew "DH Latschenkopf" from the mountain rescue organization Munich chapter plans the purchase of modern a Side-by-Side All Terrain Vehicle, with a patient cage in the rear bed. This will allow us to fast transport emergency responders to difficult locations from where they can start their climbs as well as allow us to transport patients off the mountain in difficult terrain and all weather conditions (particularly when no helicopters can fly, which is more often than not).
The overall cost is quoted at 60k€, which is a huge aspirational target, but would be a grand relief for both summer and winter rescue missions as the Side-by-Side runs on both wheels in summer and tracks in winter.
We are engaging crowdfunding, our own charities, mountain rescue own assets and all friends who can help.
I hail to my VMware family and hope you'll help to support our cause by donating to either the Alpine Rettungswesen, e.V. , our registered charity (also registered on VMware Foundation), or to this fund.
All the best, and be safe out there - always!
