If an insured event occurs (injury, falling own, acute mountain sickness attack), the lead guide stops the group, evaluates the situation and makes a decision on emergency evacuation or planned descent accompanied by an assistant guide.
After making the decision the lead guide
- calls the insurance company and reports the surname, name, date of birth and country of residence of the injured participant
- calls the Rescue Service and follows their instructions
- If necessary, immobilizes the injured participant on the slope or starts an immediate descent accompanied by a second assistant guide
As a rule, the remaining group continues the climb
