Inauguration of the new rescue center in Val Gardena

On Friday, the 6th of July 2018 the rescue center in S. Cristina, which had been planned for 18 years, was officially blessed and inaugurated. The  multifunctional structure for the benefit and safety of the whole valley is now the new center of the White and Red Cross. Moreover, it offers space for the mountain rescue and for the dog division Alpine Dogs. In the structure, the White and the Red Cross each have 3 bedrooms with multiple beds, a kitchen and a lounge. Up to 12 rescue vehicles will find their place in the new building behind the glass doors on the ground floor. The staff and volunteers can conveniently park their car in the large underground garage. Other news acquisitions inside the building are the washing system for rescue vehicles, as well as, the in-house laundry and the disinfection room. The top floor of the building is used as a large training room for courses, meetings or first aid exercises.
