Croatian Mountain Rescue Service - Dubrovnik Station will have a complex rescue practice in the Old City area, specifically on the Walls of Dubrovnik.
The practice scenario is about two injured people in Karmen - Mala Buza. One of them is at the foot of the Walls on the south side on the rocks, while the other is in the sea in front of the Mala Buza. For the rescue, Tyrolean systems with a length of about 80 meters and counterweight systems are used.
Injured persons will be taken to a secure location (Walls). The aim of the practice is to prepare the members of the Station and the adjacent stations and to present service and rescue techniques as well. The practice has great importance since threre can very likely come be a need to rescue someone at this location and make the scenario realistic.
The benefit of the practice is certainly to raise the security and readiness of the service to meet all the demands and challenges that lie ahead. It also raises the security of the City of Dubrovnik as a destination and the entire area of operation of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service – Dubrovnik Station.
With all that said, it's good to know that if you are interested you are free to join and watch the practice on Saturday, February 22nd at 11 am, at the area of Mala Buza.
