Following our article published back in July, we are delighted to announce that Falck's Danish employee, Emergency Medical Technician Anders Bruun Rasmussen has been commended once again having received the Sophus Falck Medal of Honour for his creation of an innovative, game-changing application which helps ambulance staff match the type of emergency to the closest hospital with the most appropriate specialist care.
The award was presented by Falck CEO Jakob Riis on the 3rd of October, the birthday of Falck Founder Sophus Falck, which marks a special occasion where Falck employees are rewarded for 'heroic, resolute and resourceful contributions to save lives or limit injuries while on or off duty’ and this year for the first time, the opportunity to be awarded for an innovative and creative idea was made possible.
