Rumble In the early fifties, Herman Geiser, pilot of the glaciers of Mont Blanc, perfected the air rescue by performing flights to save human lives in the mountains of the Swiss Alps. His successors today use helicopters in rescue operations in high mountains, increasingly sophisticated and modern. In Switzerland, rescue and rescue groups are less officialized. They operate within the Mountain Guide Services and work with the highly reputable Swiss Air Relief (Air Zermatt). ¡This is amazing!

The provision of this assistance by the volunteers meant, first, that they had to move by their own means from areas away from the mountain ranges where the accidents occurred. They also had to leave their job for one, two or three days and use their particular material for rescue. In these circumstances, some civil governments had a deposit of material and a network of volunteer mountaineers who acted through the Mountain Relief Groups of the FEM (Spanish Mountaineering Federation), who came in case of a call to provide help.

In recent years, the use of helicopters has become increasingly common in the rescue of damaged buildings and police surveillance (such as the BESCAM Project Air Surveillance Program in the Community of Madrid, which stopped providing it in 2009), health emergencies, catastrophes and public problems. calamities, to provide assistance to victims in the shortest possible time. Therefore, the air observers and police rescuers are prepared to help the pilots of the aircraft at the time of taking off and taking off, in cases of emergency.

On the occasion of the courses on Special Rescue and Rescue Techniques aimed especially at police and firefighters, conducted between 1982 and 1992 and convened by the Directorate General of Civil Protection, the National School has resumed this specialty in 2010 through the course of Rescue with helicopters, in this case to train members of the Military Emergency Unit.

Statistics highlight that Civil Guard Air Services helicopters participate in more than 80 percent rescue and aid. Until last July, these devices helped in 151 of the 179 actions carried out in 2010. The plane allows a quick approach of specialists to the area of the event and a much faster evacuation than with terrestrial means, so they are usually required to Almost all notices. For the Helicopter Unit, summer is the time of greatest activity, and the support of a second device in Benasque in the months of July and August makes work easier.

The horse is a social animal, a trait inherited from its ancestors. Wild horses form flocks with a strict hierarchy; Usually, there is only one leader and they contain up to 26 mares, 5 stallions and several young and young. Groups of domestic horses can be managed by a mare. They are calm creatures that accept the company of other animals and human beings. When faced with a threat, they react first by fleeing, but can defend themselves in specific cases, such as having a baby with them. The individuals of some races are more energetic and bold than others, and some more are silent and calm, like draft horses. They tend to be crepuscular: they prefer to graze in the morning or at dusk to avoid the heat of the day. All animals deserve to be treated with respect!
