Falck will become the largest EMS provider in the district of Potsdam-Mittelmark (Germany) after having won two ambulance contracts ina European wide EMS tender.
Falck will employ around 100 rescue workers and operate a total of eight stations, four of them from 1 October 2018 and the remaining four from 1 January 2019.
