The last invited lecturer, Emmanuel Cauchy, joined the group and enjoyed too the final complex training.

During the exercise, 5 different organizations amazingly cooperated together:

Liberec Medical Emergency Rescue Service, Helicopter air company DSA, Mountain Rescue of the Czech Republic, Water Rescue of the Red Cross and the Singing Rock Company.

The Course’ members equipped and introduced in the via ferrata techniques by the Singing Rock instructor Ondra Metelka and later they assisted to the Mountain Rescue to prepare the victims for evacuation. Afterwards, they have been evacuated in the role of victims by the professionals of the Liberec Helicopter EMS.

As the Water Rescue makes an important item of the outdoor rescue, they made a demonstration of their techniques under the leadership of Jan Sedláček and they also assisted to the Course’ members to pass over the untamed Jizera river.

The full involvement, high professionalism and perfect preparation of all of the participating organizations, was impressive.
