Increasing cooperation between the Krka NP and the HGSS (Croatian Mountain Rescue Service) – Šibenik Station
The Croatian Mountain Rescue Service – Šibenik Station and the Krka National Park signed an agreement about the joint use of medical equipment and search and rescue equipment, which also included an agreement about the regular renewal of licenses and the readiness to react in the event of an accident to trained employees of the Krka National Park
With the aim of improving the safety and the protection of visitors and employees within the framework of the project The Unknown Krka: hidden treasures of the middle and upper course of the Krka River (KK 06.1.2.01.0003), co-financed within the Operational Competitiveness and Cohesion Program 2014 – 2020, the Krka National Park has undertaken the procurement of equipment for search and rescue. This refers to rescue and medical equipment and tools, the indispensable components of every rescue operation, which have been handed over to the members of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) – Šibenik Station for use and storage.
The agreement was signed by the head of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service – Šibenik Station, Luka Dubravica, and the director of the Krka National Park, Nella Slavica. On this occasion, the full set of equipment was handed over: fully equipped medical backpacks, oxygen bottles, sets of immobilization splints and other immobilization means and medical supplies, stretchers for horizontal and vertical transport, stretchers for rescue in speleological and snowy conditions, full-body bags for preventing hypothermia, dry suits for rescue from water, additional neoprene equipment, and other mountaineering and climbing equipment necessary for securing the injured. The Krka National Park has been ensuring high quality and continuous cooperation for many years with the members of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) – Šibenik Station, and since 2019, they have been bound by an Agreement about common interests, with the aim of protecting relevant animals and property.
Members of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) – Šibenik Station, as partners in the Unknown Krka project, created the Krka National Park Safety Guidelines and conducted training for the employees of the Krka National Park in providing assistance to injured victims, carrying out rescues in water, and assigning team leaders for search and rescue. The courses were organized and conducted under controlled conditions by the instructors of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS).
From the beginning of September of this year, visitors have a new tourist-mountaineering map of the Krka National Park at their disposal, which was created by experienced members of the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (HGSS) – Šibenik Station, as long-term friends who know the Krka National Park well, and who regularly participate in the celebration of the European Mobility Week in the Park.
