We work to actively improve post crash response and thereby survival rates through projects with our partners FIRE AID.
EASST is one of the founding members of FIRE AID, an association of UK organisations and services with a mutual interest in providing ethical and sustainable donations of fire and rescue aid and training to countries facing the greatest challenges. Among other areas of work, FIRE AID provides guidance for donation projects, manages an equipment database, and provides a forum for discussion on issues relevant to its members.
In Ukraine, 78% of road casualties die at the scene of a crash
At least 150 lives have been saved to date using fire appliances and equipment donated by our EASST-FIREAID projects.
Post-Crash Response Project News
Over 300 items of PPE have been donated to firefighters on both banks of the Nistru river to provide better protection when responding to emergencies.
We highlight our work on post-crash response to mark this year’s World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims.
EASST encourages partnership working amongst emergency services in Ukraine in order to reduce the high number of road deaths and injuries.
