Improving the security situation within public transport with the help of passengers.
Supported by the Munich Transport and Tariff Association (MVV), the Munich Police Headquarters, the Munich Federal Police Inspectorate and the Munich Passengers’ Initiative conduct security training for passengers.
Based on the motto “How do I help myself and others?”, there are tips on self-assurance and civil courage as well as on the correct use of rescue and assistance equipment such as defibrillators in trains and at stations. Within this framework, only non-violent methods are taught to avoid dangerous situations in public transport.
In the courses, the participants are getting prepared for risky situations by experienced police officers and learn how to help without putting themselves in danger. The Munich Fire Department also explains how to use the defibrillator. The safety training courses take place monthly.
