Crimean rescuers climbed into caves — no one canceled speleological training
Crimean rescuers practiced their mountain and speleological training skills. In particular, employees of the Simferopol emergency rescue team «CRIMEA-SPAS» went to the Belogorsky district to conduct a training session in the Kara-Murza cave and the Shan-Kaya-Kobasy canyon.
During training in the Shan-Kaya-Kobasy canyon, department employees practiced the technique of rappelling a rescue group along difficult rocky terrain using special equipment. In the Kara-Murza cave, rescuers carried out a set up for safe passage of a cave 130 m deep, practiced techniques for using caving equipment for descending and ascending from a vertical karst cavity— said in «CRIMEA-SPAS».
Crimean rescuers conduct such training sessions regularly. The goal is to maintain a high level of operational and technical readiness for search and rescue operations in the mountain forest zone and caves of the peninsula. Also, during such training, knowledge about difficult areas in the mountainous Crimea is improved, techniques for using navigation devices are practiced, and the skills of rescuers working with special equipment are consolidated in practice.
