German Emergency Vocabulary

One of the main reasons I got into the German courses is by great interest in German emergency services. Of course, I'm not at that point in the course yet, but It would be nice to refresh words like Notarzt, Loshfahrzug, etc. Who else likes emergency vocab?

Tatütatah - die Feuerwehr ist da!


Nice idea. I think that it could be usefull to be able to call for help or be able to react to an emergency situation in a foreign country.

Tell me, what is so special about German emergency services ?


This is a good idea. In Rosetta Stone, they have an entire unit dedicated to emergency situations, such as getting help, disasters, emergency rooms, etc. A small sampling of words and phrases are Rettungssanitäter, Krankenwagen, Notaufnahme, Das ist ein Notfall, Er atmet nicht, Er blutet, Feuerwehr, Krankenschwester, schwerer Unfall, Zusammenstoßen.


Most of these words are included in the Medical section.


Good suggestion.
