FEVR & Post Crash Response

The 5th Pillar of the Decade of Action for Road Safety is for FEVR a very important one: Post Crash Response (PCR)

That’s also why in the future, beside collaborating to work on the 4 first Pillars on Road Danger Reduction we also want to concentrate a bit more on this 5th Pillar especially as long as we are far away from getting closer to Zero Fatalities & Serious Injuries in road traffic. FEVR was invited in May to Dakar (  Forum Post-Brasilia Actions for Road Safety in Africa, organised by Laser International ) and to Tunis to speak about our approach to the PCR.
