On June 28 2016, a FLIR-System presentation took place at the Heliport in Lauterbrunnen to representatives of police, fire fighters, emergency services and the SAC rescue stations KORE. The two air ambulance companys Lions Air Group and Air Glaciers SA have each a FLIR camera system ( Forward Looking InfraRed ). Through which, heat radiation can be made visible that are not visible to the naked eye. Until now, only the Swiss Army and the Alpine Air Ambulance ( Lions Air Group ) operated in the area of international operations with a FLIR system. This will be added now by the new options of Lions Air Group and Air Glaciers.

On June 24th - 25th 2016 the «Lions 1» was alerted 12 times in 26 hours as next and available rescue helicopter. So far, this is the highest mission number ever.

On Friday , the 3rd of June 2016, the AAA-Helicopter «Lions 1» became alarmed this year for the 300th time.
Of these alarms 276 missions ( 92 % ) could be carried out. Reason for not feasible operations was the weather.
The missions are spread so far as follows: 75 % rescue missions , 22 % patient transfers and 3 % transplant transports. The departure time is stable at around 4 minutes. The locations were achieved during daytime
on average in less than 15 minutes and at night in under 24 minutes.
