Post-Crash Response Toolkit

7 May 2021

 EASST and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), with support from UK Aid through the World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF), have launched a new training toolkit with resources to enhance the effectiveness of post-crash emergency medical and rescue operations especially in low and middle-income countries.

The toolkit, which has been developed in partnership by the EBRD, EASST, FIRE AID, SharedAim, and the George Institute for Global Health UK, includes  six easy-to-follow video animations covering the key stages of the post-crash response lifecycle. It has been designed as a helpful resource for joint planning, to assist all stakeholders in the management of post-crash response to save lives and improve outcomes for survivors. It covers basic best practice around the need for strategic planning and investment, good coordination, communication, equipment and training.

Commitment to improving post-crash response is a core part of global action to reduce road casualties.
