DRK stands for Deutsches Rotes Kreuz – the German branch of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

It is an organisation that is made up of volunteers as well as part- or fulltime employees.  They not only offer first aid courses and medical assistance at large events, but often Hausnotruf – an emergency service for elderly people, meals on wheels, and organise blood donation sessions (Blutspende).
