Rescuers appeal to the citizens not to risk their lives when going on hike tours in poor weather conditions

Published: 21.01.2021, 12:00

For several days in a row, the rescuers have been persistently warning the citizens about the avalanche danger on the slopes of the Carpathians. Snowfalls and blizzards in the highlands pose a direct threat to human life and health of tourists who, despite the warnings of the rescuers, go to the mountains in bad weather.

Rescuers are permanently involved in the search and rescue of people who lost the way, particularly in the mountains, and deviated from the planned route, or got injuries during the hike.

So, at 14.10hrs on January 20, close to the village of Pylypets of Mizhhiria district in Zakarpattia oblast during skiing on the Mount Hemba a tourist (born in 1985) from Kyiv went off the ski trail and lost his landmark. There was no connection with him for some period of time. At 19.30hrs, a team of rescuers of the SESU found a man in satisfactory condition close to the village of Bereznyky of Svaliava district. He did not need medical help. Rescuers accompanied him to his temporary residence in the village of Pylypets.

And on January 16, the carelessness of a man who fell from the rocky slope of the bank into the Prut River in Ivano-Frankivsk oblast ended in tragedy. The way to the place of stay of the victim was complicated by the specifics of the terrain. Rescuers in wetsuits of the SAR unit of Yaremche Town reached the man by boat and transported him to the shore. Unfortunately, the man died.

In order to improve the skills in people rescue in the mountains, the rescuers of Prykarpattia conducted appropriate exercises on January 20. In particular, the rescuers practiced professional skills at ski complex “KOZA” in the village of Yablunytsia.

Dear citizens! According to the forecasts of Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center, on January 21, due to snowfalls and blizzards, a significant avalanche danger is being expected in the highlands of Zakarpattia and Ivano-Frankivsk oblasts. Rescuers warn: you should abstain from hiking in the mountains!

When going on a hike tour in good weather conditions, follow the following tips from the rescuers:

In order to prevent the dangerous events with tourists and to promptly provide assistance to victims in the mountains, the SESU emphasizes the importance of citizens registering their travels!
