Dictionary of Dutchness


EHBO is the short form of Eerste Hulp bij Ongelukken or first aid. First aid boxes are known as EHBO boxes and people in fluorescent jackets with the letters EHBO on the back are there to help with cuts, bruises and other injuries at all big events. Fortunately, the red cross on a white background is a universal symbol for the EHBO brigade.
