Information for rescue services

The top goal of rescue services is saving lives. 

Rescuers must gain quick access to injured occupants in vehicles involved in an accident without putting themselves at risk. 

Even if accident statistics confirm that our vehicles are safe, our safety concept includes providing rescue services with the most up-to-date rescue card data on the Internet.
In collaboration with all German manufacturers and the German Association of the Automotive Industry, we ensure that rescuers always have correct and current information at hand at the scene of the accident. 

This is why the Guidelines for Rescue Services are available in various languages as a PDF download. 
Please select the desired category in the left navigation.

You can find the rescue cards for passenger cars and vans available for download under navigation points Rescue card for Passenger Cars and Rescue card for Vans .
