Russia, 28 April is Ambulance Rescuer's Day

Across Russia, from Sochi to Vladivostok, today is Ambulance Worker’s Day

Why is 28 April Ambulance Worker’s Day in Russia?

This celebration has had two phases, a very long unofficial one: On 28 April 1898, the first organised ambulance stations and the first pair of carriages for transporting patients appeared in Moscow on the orders of Moscow police chief D.F. Trepov.

Today, however, it is a recognised and official national holiday: the severe impact it had on rescuers during the Covid-19 pandemic convinced everyone in 2020 that this celebration should be public.

In Russia, as in Italy and the rest of the world, rescuers were the first line of defence and the covid patient’s first contact with healthcare.

Rescuers, even in Russia, went to treat a patient suffering from a lethal virus about which, at the time, little or nothing was known.

In every corner of the earth the rescuer does this.

And so Happy Ambulance Worker’s Day to our Russian colleagues.
