【DE】And the emergency doctor was flexible!

Faster in the injured person with the “Äskulap Nürnberg 12”: The emergency medical milestone can be seen in a special show of the Nuremberg Red Cross Museum at RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA® 2021.

Valuable time savings thanks to NEF: Special show “Rescue service and Ambulance of the 1970s” at RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA® 2021


A look at recent history is often thoughtful: Much of what seems quite self-evident to us today was considered revolutionary a few decades ago. This is particularly clear in the field of emergency medicine, where groundbreaking improvements have been achieved through technical organizational progress. A special exhibition of the Nuremberg Red Cross Museum entitled “Rescue service and ambulance transport of the 1970s” at the RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA® presents several contemporary vehicles – including a milestone with local color (Hall 4, booth 311).

“In the seventies, road accidents were the number one emergency in Germany,” explains Markus Jessberger, volunteer of the RotkreuzMuseum Nuremberg. Initially, the emergency doctor was picked up by the ambulance.


With the development of the so-called rendezvous system, this time delay was avoided – and the emergency doctor was flexible!”


The procedure, also known as the “Nuremberg model”, describes the independent journey of the emergency doctor to the emergency site with a specially equipped emergency medical emergency vehicle – in short: NEF. A replica of the first specimen put into service in Bavaria, the “Äskulap Nürnberg 12”, can be admired in the museum show.


With the introduction of the NEF in October 1974, Nuremberg “retrospectively has a pioneering role”, says Jessberger, who himself has been active in the emergency services for more than 20 years. For BMW, on the other hand, the converted 520/4 E12 is the “entry into the Emergency medical service”. All modern vehicles are ultimately based on this original NEF.


In elaborate manual work, the replica of the “Äskulap Nürnberg 12” shown at the RETRO CLASSICS BAVARIA® was created from a white 5 BMW of the same year of construction – of course using original components. Jessberger: “The blue lights, for example, come from a fire engine from 1973. Even the license plate is correct!”
