I am delighted to be here today with you, on this virtual challenge, to be able to exchange on our care practices and thus work together to continue to give the best care to our casualties.

Good luck to you all!

Arnaud Coleou

Professional fire-fighter for 25 years, I worked in the Fire Stations of Rambouillet and Saint-Arnoult before joining the Montigny le Bretonneux CSP. A first aid instructor for 20 years, I have been keen to share and pass on my knowledge of first aid to people with our young recruits but also my experienced colleagues. I joined EXTRAC five years ago: this new issue represents a personal challenge and responds to my desire for continuous improvement. I am committed to representing the SDIS 78 with dignity in these international competitions and to satisfy the unwavering pride of my wife and my children who support me in this experience.

Yves Marx

Working as Head of the technical and logistical service within the Training Center of the Luxembourg Fire and Rescue Corps (CGDIS), I joined as a volunteer the Fire Services 31 years ago and the Luxembourg Red Cross Ambulance Service 30 years ago.

Today I’m still a volunteer firefighter within the Luxembourg Fire and Rescue Corps and do duties on the Ambulance and Fire/Rescue as well. Getting first contact with the Trauma Challenges with my Team on the 2014 Luxembourg National Trauma and Rescue Challenge and same year on the WRC in Moreton-in-Marsh, I became a year after a WRO Assessor whilst the WRC 2015 in Lisbon. Since then I am assessing on the national Challenges in Luxembourg and France and become the Trauma Challenge Coordinator within the Luxembourg Rescue Organisation a few years ago.

Françoise Weydert

I am a teacher and a volunteer paramedic in the Luxembourg Fire and Rescue Service since 16 years and a paramedic instructor since 2017. Being the medic of a technical rescue team, I became a member of the World Rescue family in 2007 and participated at 4 World Rescue challenges (in RTC and trauma) before I became a medical assessor for the World Rescue organization in 2014.

I am the secretary and assessor coordinator of the Luxembourg Rescue organisation and also part of our development aid program, which works on a project in Madagascar since 2016.
All in all I have assessed numerous national challenges in Luxembourg, as well as in Ireland, France and Germany and I had the privilege to work as an assessor in 4 World Rescue challenges.

Valérie Arens

I chose being a volunteer on a fire and rescue corps at the age of 16. This fact inspired me for choosing my job as nurse of anaesthesia and reanimation and now I work since a few years on an intensive care.

We are a small country so it was just a question of time that I had contact with the Trauma and Rescue challenge. So, I began as interior assessor on Recue Challenge than as shadow and later as Trauma Assessor. All these challenges make so much fun and it is so inspiring to learn known people with the same job or hobby from all over the world.

My highlight was the WRC on Capetown on 2018 where I was one of the Trauma-Assessors because we had such a great Team, learned new things, met engaged people and we all had a beautiful time together.
