JAK teams, specially trained for search and rescue operations to be carried out in all kinds of climatic conditions and natural disasters, work against adverse situations every year.

Using snowmobiles and ski equipment, teams perform search and rescue, first aid and evacuation studies in terrain conditions up to 5 degrees below zero.

Gendarmerie commando teams are also given training on what to do against bad scenarios. Employees are shown with applications how to find someone who is under an avalanche.

Injured Tourist Rescued According to the Scenario

As per the scenario within the scope of the exercise, a tourist who called the 112 Emergency Call Center on the phone reported that he fell and was injured after going for a walk.

Determining the tourist's position in the ski resort, the JAK team took action. Reaching the area on snow-covered motorcycles, the teams then descended to the place where the injured were on a stretcher, thanks to the rope station they set up.

The teams, who made the first aid to the injured person on the sloping land, carried him to the stretcher. The teams then pulled this person up and took him to the safe area. The team of 4 people, who took the ski teams, went down to the center with the injured, thanks to the help of the arm they tied to the stretcher.

The exercise ended after the injured was carried to the ambulance on a stretcher on the back of the motorcycle.
