Latvian Red Cross, in cooperation with the State Emergency Medical Service, provided the first aid at the Music and Art Festival “Positivus” 2017, which was held in Salacgriva, Latvia from 13th to 17th of July.
There were 3 first aid points in the festival area, where 15 Latvian RC first aid providers and 6 colleagues from the Estonian Red Cross provided assistance 24 hours a day. The Red Cross teams provided first aid to around 1,000 people, and 8 were accompanied to get emergency medical care.
Mostly, help by the Red Cross was given in cases of sunburn, minor injuries, abrasions, wounds and headaches.
This was the second year when the Latvian Red Cross worked together with Estonian colleagues within the international cooperation; their presence and assistance, especially among the visitors of Estonian origin, gave very positive feedback.
See you next year!
