Topics

MountainSafety.info is currently building up additional topics. After avalanche rescue as the starting point, Mountain Emergency Medicine is the next logical step as an optimal interaction between avalanche rescue and the initial medical treatment on-site.  This is critical in order to esnure a positive outcome. MountainSafety.info is however not bound to avalanche or winter related topics.  Its content shall in the future cover all aspects connected to safety in the mountain environment including topics related to rock, ice, glacier, navigation, mountain weather, decision making etc.
Consistency of content and terminology within a topic and between related topics is a key advantage of MountainSafety.info content.
All translations are done by experienced workgroup members who are 100% familiar with the methods, techniques, systems and strategies from an operational as well as from a teaching perspective.
In order to achieve these goals, the members of MountainSafety.info workgroups closely collaborate,  not only in the creation of the materials, but equally teach common courses to ensure a high level of synchronization and common practical understanding.
Avalanche Rescue
Avalanche Rescue is the first topic within MountainSafety.info
In our workgroup, we have key representatives from all user groups and user levels from Austria, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Holland, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States of America.   After an initial effort of four years, we have as a common research and development effort, assembled best practice in avalanche rescue. As a pioneer workgroup, we simultaneously developed an efficient, international collaboration approach, as well as completely new, web-based work tools as such this portal.
