    In Transylvania, in the city of Targu Mures, Northern Romania, is the headquarters of the country's emergency rescue service SMURD.

    It was founded just after the Romanian revolution in 1990 by Raed Arafat, a young intensive care doctor who was shocked by the high mortality rates in the country's emergency wards.
