“Although we live in a country that does not have high mountains, the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service has developed its maximum capacity and rescue techniques and as such is the vanguard of the region and is a proud member of IKAR-CISA that contributes to the development of the world’s mountain rescue service,” said Vinko Prizmić, Head of CRMS.

The conference is held under the auspices of Ivo Josipović, President of the Republic of Croatia.
