At the service of the community

The Red Cross and Scouts provide assistance for the injured and disabled in mass events. We'll tell you what it's all about.

Solidarity fingerprint

Jobs the rest of society would take good money for. To be exposed to heat, in stony areas and in imminent danger. These are the tasks voluntarily performed by young people of the Red Cross and Scouts. They put themselves at the service of others, receiving nothing in return. And one of the most eloquent cases was the Vintage. More than 20 thousand people attended the Greek theater Frank Romero Day every night. And there they were, ready for the next intervention.

“ We provide the health coverage of Vintage and its repetitions. We offer help to anyone who comes to apply for it,” said Diego Dubois about the service provided by the Red Cross. “There are two primary health care posts and two operations posts. In total we have 30 lifeguards who are providing first aidand health safety in a way voluntary”.

The fire test was the first night: “We attended a total of 30 people. All were mild attentions. It was a night moved by being the central act.” While the most requested services are for “heat stroke and dehydration. We encourage everyone to drink plenty of water. It is important to attend hydrated to these events.”

For her part, Marisa Lorca, from the Scoutsgroup, gave us some details of the service they have in charge. The task is to move people with reduced mobility in their wheelchairs, through the ramps built for this purpose: “We did this service 8 years ago. We facilitate access for people with disabilities to the sector assigned to them in the stands. Our work is always voluntary, trying to make inclusion for the disabled real,” said Marisa.
