Dedicated Volunteers: Upper Austrian Mountain Rescue

365 days a year, 24/7, the Upper Austrian mountain rescue team is always ready to provide quick and efficient assistance in alpine terrain for those in need. As a non-profit association, the rescue service's core tasks are carried out by volunteers. Being a mountain rescuer is not only a matter of honor but also requires dedication and commitment to face the challenges of working in inaccessible terrain and often unpredictable conditions.


"Good team work is central to the function of a mountain rescue team"
