Macau Grand Prix Organizing Committee
Jointly Conducts Professional Rescue Training with FIA

On 7th and 8th October, the Macau Grand Prix Organizing Committee (MGPOC) jointly conducted professional rescue training with the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) at the Macau Grand Prix Building in order to ensure that all rescue team members are trained to the highest internationally-recognized standards of proficiency.

 

Invited to conduct this year’s rescue training course were Extrication Consultant for this year’s Macau Grand Prix, Dr. Jean-Jacques Issermann, and FIA Medical Delegate, Dr. Jacques Tropenat, who provided professional instruction, shared their experience and gave demonstrations. Course content included car accident simulation training, rescue practice and assessment.A total of over 80 doctors, nurses and firemen took part in the sessions, who successfully passed the examination received certificates from the FIA.

 

Motorsport rescue requires highly specialized personnel and hardware. All team members must be fully conversant with the equipment as well as the precise procedures in the event of an incident in order to respond with a highly efficient manner. In order to perform a rescue procedure effectively, all team members must remain calm when faced with sudden incidents, and respond with clear and accurate instructions. Close communication and cooperation between all involved are vital to ensure rescue operations are performed quickly and seamlessly.

 

Since 2007, all rescue personnel at the event have been Macao residents, and since then every year the Macau Grand Prix and the FIA have together organized courses to provide professional training for rescue personnel, ensuring they are equipped with sufficient knowledge and the ability to provide medical rescue and fast intervention services. To date, more than 500 participants have taken this designated course and worked at the Macau Grand Prix.
