On 28 February 28, the LIFE RETTER app was awarded the "eAward 2018" at a ceremony in the T-Center in Vienna, developed amongst other by Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe in Österreich. With the help of the app, trained first responders are informed about an emergency in their vicinity and they are led to the place of use. These begin with the resuscitation, until the rescue service arrives. In this way, important time can be gained - to save a patient's life.
