PUBLIC ASSISTANCE AND HEALTH SERVICE

ANPAS – MISERICORDIE (Public Assistance and Health Services)

Civil defence – International activities – Health services – Social services

The commitment of ANPAS and MISERICORDIE (ambulance service) stems directly from a spirit of solidarity and charity to supply a ready and free service that is competent and well organized in a civil society. Theirs is a mission in which both organizations are working in all fields concerning people: emergency health services, commitment in major emergencies, missions of international solidarity, preventive measures in circumstances where the people of the city and thousands of athletes are involved, such as during Florence Marathon, in which the two organizations make available a great number of service vehicles and hundreds of volunteers for the protection of participants and spectators. This commitment is rendered to the city of Florence in one of the major sports events where their services are needed. Medical care is supplied by the Florence Medical Institute for Sport.

Health services are supplied jointly by:

Coordinated Ambulance Units of greater Florence and Florence Public Assistance

- with a fixed first aid point every 5 km near the refreshment points

- two doctors on motor bikes who will be following the race

- a mobile first aid unit at the arrival point

- a first aid coordination post at the arrival line

- Misericordia/ANPAS minibuses to take those who withdraw in the half-marathon area to Piazza Beccaria
