The F1 Grand Prix safely with the Red Cross and the fire brigade

28 May 2019 - 16h15

As every year, a large first aid device was deployed to ensure the safety of all at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monaco. Several novelties, intercultural exchanges and a beautiful general cooperation between all the services marked this edition.

Night watch and computer file sharing between the eight sector leaders and the command post facilitated personnel management, logistics, and radio and telephone communications, not always easy, during this year’s races. “For the first year, the staff of the Monegasque Red Cross (CRM) provided the night guards on Friday and Saturday with the firefighters […] and it worked very well” says Claude Fabbretti, first aid director for CRM.

CRM in strength

This year, 320 volunteers on all five days (E-prix and Formula 1 Grand Prix) totaling more than 10 040 volunteer hours participated in this event. A squad that reached its peak on Sunday during the Formula One race with 250 people and 16 ambulances mobilized. “We did a total of 148 interventions in eight sectors, 22 ambulances and seven night watchers at the fire station. In the end, I am very satisfied with this increased spirit of cooperation for this edition, which has facilitated interventions and care“, said Claude Fabbretti.
