Your Tasks

Emergency Medical Service (SAN/RD)
Join our on-call SAN/RD team. We help where we are needed. You don't need any special basic knowledge, just an affinity to medicine. Everything else will be taught to you in various courses. Dare, we are also only human and help each other, whether in the case of emergency or on a medical service. We stick together and support each other!

Readiness support and logistics
In case of a disaster, our support and logistics team takes over the supply and catering of people and helpers. Ideally, you have a gastronomic education or are even a cook? We need you! Together with our team you would plan and execute meals. Other helpers will take care of everything else that needs to be taken care of. Do you enjoy standing at the field kitchen and calculating in large quantities? Here's your chance.
