Rescuers ask citizens to follow safety rules when spending leisure time in mountainous areas

Published: 13.01.2021, 17:02

Despite the warnings of the Rescue Service, citizens often violate safety rules while on vacation in the mountains, which can have very sad consequences for health and, as a result, ruined the weekend. Adverse weather conditions, overestimation of one's own physical strength and capabilities, non-compliance with safety rules while skiing lead to injuries, frostbite and hypothermia, disorientation in the mountains and more. This issue becomes especially relevant in January, when citizens go on vacation to the Carpathians, while the temperature reaches below zero, and forecasters always warn of avalanche danger.

Only since the beginning of 2021, emergency workers have been involved several times in the search for citizens who got lost in the mountains, as well as providing assistance to injured tourists.

So, for example, during January 9 rescuers of the Lviv oblast helped 4 injured tourists-skiers. In particular, on ski slopes of mountain Trostyan the man of 1987 of a birth from Nikolaev injured a leg. A similar trouble happened to a guy born in 2011 from Dnipro. And on Vysokyi Verkh Hill, emergency workers provided assistance to a woman born in 1978, a resident of Kyiv, who suffered a leg injury. As well as a guy born in 2011 from Odessa, he injured his back. Rescuers provided medical assistance to the victims and lowered them to the foot of the mountains, where they were handed over to medics.

In Ivano-Frankivsk oblast in the first days of this year, rescuers also turned to rescuers for help. Thus, on January 3, a tourist from Kherson approached the emergency workers of the Zaroslyak post of the Vorokhta Search and Rescue Department and said that her husband, born in 1994, had gone to Mount Hoverla, lost his bearings and could not climb from the top on his own. Rescuers found a lost tourist and escorted the man to the Zaroslyak training and sports base.

In addition, so that tourists who go en masse to the mountains, do not get lost in the snowdrifts, rescuers even set additional signs - during heavy snowfall, they help travelers navigate.

In order to prevent the occurrence of dangerous events with the participation of tourists and to promptly provide assistance to victims in the mountains, the SES emphasizes the importance of citizens registering their travels!
