Klaus Daiminger, 24 years old, works at the BMW Group Plant in Dingolfing. Living in Mengkofen, Lower Bavaria - an area with 6,000 inhabitants which is so rurally remote it takes approximately 15-20 minutes for the emergency services to attend a medical incident. Klaus, a long standing volunteer paramedic, established a medical 'first responder' [Helfer-Vor-Ort] service in his local town, together with the Bavarian Red Cross. . Sacrificing his free time for the set-up, development and ongoing provision of this service, he identified a critical need in his rural neighbourhood to support the emergency services with a 'first responder' service which ensures round-the-clock initial medical patient care until the arrival of official relief units. Established in March 2011, this 'first responder' service now has 18 volunteer aiders who work daily and free of charge and coordinate the service emergency vehicle which through a rota, is only ever a maximum of 3-5 minutes from any potential medical emergency. . Klaus continues to devote his time to the provision of this voluntary community medical service and its ongoing development. There are already demands from neighbouring communities as to whether they can be included in the catchment area of this service in the future.
