As a volunteer firefighter, I participate in interventions, as PGD Ptuj is a unit of wider importance and measures in all interventions (traffic accidents, work accidents, fires, rescue from / on water, hazardous substances and other accidents). Rescue from rubble is one of the areas of technical rescue. For the successful work of units in rescuing from rubble, rescuers must be properly equipped, trained and organized. The equipment and tools can be convenient for simple cases, such as can be found in almost every house and with which most rescue units in the Republic of Slovenia are equipped. For more complex rescues, we need special tools and equipment – only some rescue units in the Republic of Slovenia are equipped with them. The training of rescuers refers to the expertise that rescuers have, experience, and physical and mental readiness, as rescuers often encounter stressful situations in their work. Last but not least, rescuers must also be properly motivated for their work.
