autoSense supports the initiative "#IMMERDA" by helfen helfen® Schweiz
The association "helfen helfen® Schweiz" has set itself the goal of supporting the blue-light organisations in their challenging activities, because these are increasingly impaired, at the scene of an accident, in action on the roads. autoSense finds this commitment a good cause and supports the association with the appropriate fleet solution free of charge for the management of the cars in action.
When two people talk about all kinds of things late at night after a major operation, exciting ideas often emerge. According to Nils Winterhalter, this is exactly how the association "helfen helfen® Schweiz" came into being. Nils has been an active member of the association since September 2021 and is responsible for finances and accounting. He is currently studying business administration at the University of Zurich and will graduate with a Master's degree in 2 years.
So that night, the idea of an organisation that supports the work of emergency and rescue forces through media campaigns was born. The declared aim was to raise awareness among the Swiss population with the help of these campaigns. A first, very successful campaign was what we see implemented on the motorways today: Emergency lanes. Today, these lanes form automatically. Raising awareness has worked, and drivers' behaviour has adapted. Close cooperation with associations, state institutions and the emergency and rescue organisations themselves was and is decisive for the success of the campaign.
But: The work of the police, ambulance and fire brigade is increasingly affected by violence, threats and obstructions from the public. This is where the new campaign comes in: #IMMERDA.
Always there for the population: every 2 minutes, the rescue service goes out to help people in need. More than 95% of all firefighters are volunteers in the event of an emergency. Around the clock and 365 days a year.
Nils likes the work in the association. It is exciting and varied, and also meaningful. The association has just moved into a new, larger office. A sign of the growth and success of the work. The association also has several vehicles at its disposal, provided by a partner. autoSense has equipped the vehicles and the association free of charge with the proven fleetPro fleet solution and for practical management of the pool vehicles.
Also in use is the refuelling solution from autoSense, the first digital refuelling solution via app in Switzerland. It facilitates Refuel (and in future charging) by activating the petrol pump via app, cashless payment via app and billing directly in the app. For the monthly expense reports, this is a pleasant relief and liberation from paper and Excel.
We are convinced that the work of helfen helfen®Schweiz serves a good purpose, since we may all be in need ourselves at some point and are certainly glad to have motivated and unhindered emergency workers in the blue-light organisations, always there for all of us.
