The association of the Samaritans of the Czech Republic (ASCR) was founded in February 1992 and therefore followed on from the tradition of the Samaritan organisation. The association was banned during the 2nd World War. The first task of the ASCR is the rescue service in Prague-West and Kralupy n. Vltavou and the trans-port of injured and sick persons in Odolov. In Prague-West and Melnik the ASCR is integrated into the state rescue service. The area of tasks also includes water and air rescue. There is a Samaritan school for First Aid training, training of nurses and paramedics in Melnik. In addition, the ASCR is founder of the club of active aging “KLAS”, which offers senior citizens educational, cultural and sports activities.
