Education Programme

Prof. Dr. med. Peter Sefrin
Science Director of the Education
Programme at RETTmobil 2016



From practice for practice


In addition to the showcasing of all areas of the rescue service at RETTmobil, which is unique at least in Germany, there is again the education and training in medical-rescue service. During the 3-days of the exhibition, a comprehensive programme of current topics will be on the agenda. The extensive range of operational tasks in the rescue service is also reflected in the topics of advanced education and workshops. The focus of this year's training is on topics such as mass casualty incidents with injured or sick patients and the specificity of the terrorist situation, which can be described as a particular challenge.


In 11 workshops and 8 modules, each covering 3 topics, a total of 45 speakers will make key statements from their respective fields of expertise. The most frequent topic that has occupied the rescue service in the recent past is the special situation in the event of terrorism. Although we have been spared from these events in the past few months - which does not mean that such emergency situations could not affect us again - the past has shown that not only completely new deployment tactics are required, but also that, once established, they must be communicated to the professional personnel. In addition, the program also includes topics from the fields of psychology, hygiene, error management and the handling of special operational situations.


In the field of medicine, it is not only topics concerning the special aspects of emergency medical care for certain groups of patients (children, obese, palliative and geriatric patients), but also important new devices that can be lifesaving in use. Increasing technicisation is of particular interest to the rescue service staff - as at the trade show. Within the framework of further training, not only can the function and indication in use be explained in detail, but there is also, as with all modules, the possibility of an intensive discussion with the speakers.


The speakers are all highly competent practitioners from rescue services and fire brigades who have immediately agreed to make themselves available for such training.


Thus, for the 18th time all interested participants will not only have the opportunity to visit the trade show, but will also be offered the opportunity for a comprehensive advanced training of all operational tasks. This makes RETTmobil 2018 a platform for an intensive exchange of information and experience for professionals in the field of rescue with its many facets.

Welcome Statement: City of Fulda





Dr. Heiko Wingenfeld
Mayor of the City of Fulda
Host City of RETTmobil



Dear exhibitors and guests of RETTmobil 2018,


It is a great pleasure to welcome you in our beautiful city and to the 18th RETTmobil in Fulda. Since its premiere in 2001, RETTmobil has not only developed extremely well; over the years, it has become the leading international trade show for rescue and mobility.


The impressive numbers of exhibitors and visitors make a clear statement. They emphesise the relevance of the exhibition and confirm a coherent concept based on the three pillars of "Trade Show", "Training" and "Mobility" which is characterised by the high quality standards of organisers and participants. I would like to sincerely thank you all for your great personal commitment and your professionalism.


The tasks of volunteer and full-time helpers from rescue organisations and fire brigades are becoming increasingly complex, demanding and challenging in view of medical-technical, social and political developments. This is also reflected in this year's exhibition programme, which again includes a large number of workshops, seminars and addresses on current topics.


RETTmobil is a very special platform. I wish that all exhibitors and guests will use the fair to talk to each other, exchange ideas, have stimulating discussions and make or refresh contacts. Perhaps you let the fair days end in our beautiful city centre? A visit is worthwhile - again and again!

Welcome Statement: DFV e.V.



Hartmut Ziebs

President of the German Fire Services
Association (DFV e.V.)



Dear visitors of RETTmobil,


Fire brigades are a major supporting pillar of rescue service. Every twelve seconds, firefighters are on rescue duty - 2.5 million times a year. From strokes to trapped people: If you need us, we are there!


Sometimes, however, even helpers need help - then a network of helping hands is required. The "Hilfe für Helfer" foundation of the German Fire Services Association supports firefighters in coping with particularly stressful operational experiences. I am very pleased that the foundation will have its own stand at the leading trade show for rescue and mobility RETTmobil from May 16th to 18th 2018, at which it will be providing information on potential burdens, consequences and stress management. The central location in Fulda offers the opportunity to network with fire service personnel from all over Germany, to obtain information about new developments and to exchange about the future.


Parallel to RETTmobil, the foundation's 5th symposium will take place in Fulda on Thursday, May 17th 2018. The focus here is on methodology and didactics in psychosocial emergency care for emergency service personnel. Information about the event can be found at - I am looking forward to your visit!


I wish you a successful, informative and encounterful RETTmobil 2018!

RETTmobil becomes of legal age


RETTmobil is becoming of legal age. For the eighteenth time, the entire rescue sector meets in Fulda from 16th to 18th of May. In 2001, everything started with 3,500 trade show visitors and 63 exhibitors. This year we are expecting more than 500 exhibitors from Germany and abroad and well over 27,000 visitors.


The development throughout these years is impressive and confirms that we have been and still are on the right path with the event concept for exhibitors and visitors alike. We especially expect a larger visitor attendance of experts from the fire services sector.


The extreme hotspots of crisis and appalling attacks pose unbelievable challenges for rescue and aid organisations. Furthermore, the world political situation is anything but stable. This year, we are expecting larger numbers of visitors from neighbouring European countries, the United States of America, China and India.


There would not have been a RETTmobil without the active support of the DFV. The successful partnership is now in the 17th year, and we are very grateful for this continuity. Since 2012, there has also been closer cooperation with the AGBF (Working group of the Professional Fire Brigades), which will be represented with its own stand this year. The panel discussion and the trade fair forum were included in the RETTmobil programme upon the initiative of the AGBF. Dr. h.c. Frank-Jürgen Weise, President of Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V.Hartmut Ziebs, has accepted patronage this year.


The geographical location of Fulda, the unique infrastructure and cost structure are decisive success factors for exhibitors and visitors of RETTmobil. The city of Fulda and the State of Hesse have been providing exemplary support to RETTmobil since 2001.


The successful workshops and further training courses for medical rescue services that have been held successfully in recent years have confirmed the high demand and will be carried out professionally this year as well.


Once again this year, many well-known aid organisations will be represented.


The three pillars of the trade show, advanced training and further education, as well as experiencing mobility, stand for the success of RETTmobil, today and in the future. The members of IKR e.V., who stand for quality and safety from Germany, are looking forward to your visit and to good and constructive discussions. For three days Fulda is once again the focal point of the entire rescue industry.

Welcome Statement: AG FReDi

Jörg Wackerhahn

Spokesman for the Association of 
Fire Services in Emergency Rescue
(AG FReDi) of AGBF Bund


Dear colleagues,
dear visitors of Rettmobil 2018:


Once again, an eventful year is behind us and two topics have remained in special memory. On the one hand, there are threat situations, on the other hand, the attacks on emergency forces personnel. Threat situations, regardless of whether they take place with few participants in a family environment or are organised by groups, are a new kind and dimension of work for us. As unattractive as these operations may be, we must prepare ourselves more than ever before and further develop existing concepts in order to "rescue" as effectively as possible during operations while not being harmed ourselves.


Even in the latest operations, we were able to gain a lot of knowledge and experience. The lessons and experiences will be presented to interested visitors. In the field of advanced training and education, renowned speakers with practical experience are gathered, who will give lectures on a wide range of interesting topics.


The attacks on emergency service forces are the second major issue that has occupied us. Protective vests are not the "panacea"! It is more important to precisely analyse the type and number of attacks in detail and to develop appropriate, holistic concepts for the protection of the emergency personnel. It is also necessary to remain objective and not to exaggerate in the external presentation! The ultimate goal must be to prevent attacks on emergency services!


Rettmobil has become a constant in the rescue service landscape in recent years, with an upward trend! But it is not only an event for "Rescuers", but also for those who want to become one. Due to the presence of the organisations and associations it is also ideal for visitors who are looking for a professional challenge in the rescue sector or who want to get involved on a voluntary basis. We are ready, talk to us!


AG FReDi, as a representative of the fire brigades working the in rescue service in Germany, gladly assumes sponsorship again in 2018 and participates in the professional training and exercises.


I wish the exhibitors and all visitors a good and interesting time at the exhibition, stimulating discussions as well as many new ideas and contacts. At the same time, I cordially invite you to visit us at the booth of AG FReDi!
