Rescue work

Passions for extreme sports in the mountains are associated with a high risk, and therefore accidents are not excluded. Knowledge and skills to evacuate the victim are very important in the highlands, where you can’t depend on the quick help of specialists in most cases. Our rescue training courses are subdivided into:

~ rescue work in a group;

~ rescue work by  two persons;

~ use of improvised means (from what you have on your hands in the mountains – ropes, ice axes, backpacks, carabiners, telescopic sticks, etc. – you will learn how to make stretchers, tires, etc., provide first aid and transport the victim ).

To practice these skills is recommended on natural relief or in conditions as close as possible to the real ones. Trainings are require responsibility, concentration and regularity from students.
