Day 4 was an “Avalanche Day”. Kristina opened the session presenting the medical approach and triage and Iva Sikulová, the Slovak avalanche specialist, proceeded with the training in avalanche prevention and technical rescue.

Later this day everybody could experience a real avalanche scenario prepared by the Czech Mountain Rescue members. The participants should organize research, rescue, multiple-victim triage and medical approach in a simulated avalanche accident.
