The search and rescue group (GRA) is highly trained and prepared to execute such an important task.
Members of GRA have participated in international academic courses:
- Chamonix/ France, with the police mountaineering force (PGHM)
- Chamonix / France , with CSR (companies republicaine de securitees)
- Bolivia, with Bolivian mountaineering association (AGMTB), and support of the “Union Valdostana de guias de alta montanha”.
- Ecuador, with the ESGUIM body.
Furthermore, many of our certified guides have certifications in rescue such as (WFA) wilderness first aid, (WAFA) wilderness advanced first aid, or (WFR) wilderness first responder.
The general training of ASEGUIM mountain guides includes expertise in search and rescue.
GRA has already performed several successful rescues in Ecuador.
It is an ASEGUIM priority to keep GRA well supplied and operational.
