28th April – 1st May 2018
For the second year in a row, the I ° Civil Protection Unit of the Corpo Italiano di San Lazzaro was present, for support and control, in the context of the “Comicon” International Exhibition which, in this 2018 edition, celebrated its twentieth year and registered over 150,000 visitors (with average values of over 40,000 people per day).
The large number of visitors, mainly young, required constant monitoring of safety for the prevention of critical situations from overcrowding (interruption of the flow of transit, crowds, possible panic situations, etc.) as well as for ordinary interventions caused by illness (fainting, hyperthermia, bruises and accidental falls, etc.) or children who are lost in the crowd. Many interventions have been made by our operators for all types of events indicated.
The participation of the Italian Corps of San Lazzaro at the event was a recognition of the seriousness and professionalism of the Corps operators of civil protection and was, at the same time, an opportunity of further training for younger operators who were always supported by more experienced people.
