ORTOVOX ALPINE FIRST AID COURSES
Learn with the safety academy how to respond quickly and safely in the case of an emergency
When mountaineering or alpine climbing, or on alpine tours, accidents or sudden illnesses are possible even with good preparation, planning and execution. In these situations, knowledge of first aid is essential: Only then will you be able to respond quickly and safely in the case of an emergency. In order to convey this in-depth knowledge, ORTOVOX is offering alpine first aid courses within the scope of the SAFETY ACADEMY and in cooperation with first aid expert Dani Hornsteiner. The course concept is specifically tailored for alpine mountaineers – whether for mountaineering, climbing or for alpine tours. Fast first aid can save lives. In contrast to areas with well-established infrastructure, conditions in the mountains make professional rescues more difficult. Difficulty accessing the scene of accident, weather conditions or a high climb for the rescue services can extend the waiting time. Therefore the demands on the first responder increase.
