International HEMS congress huge success for Ideagen Gael
Ideagen Gael recently attended the International HEMS Congress in support of the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) community, who are an increasing user of our software solutions.
Located on the picturesque coastal town of Massa, around 50km north of Pisa, Italy, the event - unique in size, professionalism and turnout - brought together all the major players in helicopter rescue with organisations, institutions, companies, professionals and associations involved in the three day event.
Our team were on hand to meet one of our significant customers in the industry - Inaer - who were also a main sponsor from the rotary community. Inaer has a major presence in the Italian state emergency response programme, as well as running HEMS operations in other European countries.
The event was really successful and was well attended. The International HEMS Congress included specialist units that comprise a state emergency programme, including dog search teams, underground/pothole rescue teams, specialist ambulance teams, fire fighting crews and their equipment, and helicopter rescue assets.
The event was open to the general public, and the warm weather brought a good crowd to the airfield on all days, who were able to move freely around the static displays, including five helicopters. Everyone could chat with the crews and specialists in their respective areas, which was another added bonus.
