Mountain rescuers continue their training in case of emergency

When it comes down to it, we have to know what to do, said the twelve participants of the emergency medical training of the rhon-spessart mountain rescue team at the kissinger hutte. During the basic course, the prospective mountain rescuers were trained over five weekends on how patients in impassable terrain can receive the fastest possible emergency medical assistance.

Topics such as traumatology, internal medicine and special emergencies in mountain rescue were taught in the training course. During the exam, the mountain guards had to show what they had learned by means of five case studies. This was preceded by a theoretical part. The instructors came from the mountain rescue teams of bischofsheim, hosbach, miltenberg, oberbach and oberelsbach.

Markus mathes, emergency paramedic and head of the emergency medicine department of the rhon-spessart region, explained that the special feature of this year’s course was that the course had been started in october 2020, but could only be continued this year due to the corona wave. Despite this difficulty, almost all participants "passed"!" And there was a certificate. These went to the mountain guards from the mountain guards of bischofsheim, fladungen, hosbach, miltenberg, oberbach, and oberelsbach. The young mountain rescue workers can now call themselves mountain rescue paramedics, said markus mathes, emergency paramedic and head of the emergency medicine department of the rhon-spessart region, who led the course. In addition to the basic course in emergency medicine, candidates on their way to becoming active members of the bavarian mountain rescue team now have to pass examinations in summer, winter, air rescue and nature conservation. The basis for this is the basic training for mountaineering in summer and winter.
