Mountain Search and Rescue

Mountain Search and Rescue

The Mountain Rescue Department is Hellenic Rescue Team's oldest department. It is staffed of members who love mountaineering and are engaged in mountain sports. The goal is to provide assistance and conduct search and rescue operations in mountains.

The department has all the necessary specialized equipment and training to intervene and carry out even the most difficult undertakings. The members of the mountain rescue department are highly trained volunteers, each of whom specializes in fields such as: high mountain, cliffs, ski patrol, canyon or ski mountaineering. It has a longstanding relationship with the Air force and the Army Aviation for over 30 years, while the training of its members is carried out by instructors who are trained with experienced organizations from abroad, each of which is an expert in its own field (Austria for avalanches, Serbia for ski patrol, France for mountain rescue and operations with helicopters).
