Things are looking good for the next generation of the Johanniter rescue service in Munich-Land. The group of paramedics aged 16 and over in Riemerling took first place at the Johanniter state competition in Würzburg at the weekend for the third time in a row and qualified for the national competition next year in Berlin. 31 teams in six categories started the first aid competition on Saturday to find the best Johanniter rescuers in Bavaria in different disciplines. A total of more than 670 Johanniter and guests were present in Würzburg in Lower Franconia.
“We did it and got first place,” says Sebastian Müller, famous local youth leader and himself a member of the competition team from the district of Munich. “The many hours of practice have more than earned it.” 28 injured actors simulated various emergency scenarios at 15 stations, which the competitors had to master. The expertise of the approximately 215 participants was also required for the written test, the carrying course with many obstacles and the cardiopulmonary resuscitation. 42 referees set up the performances of the teams. The team from the district had already won first place in 2016 and 2018.
