The usual great cave rescue training during fall was held in the Devil’s Hole Cave in Solymár this year. Also we excersized near the entrance on the surface. We practiced the handling and transport of the stretcher in several groups. In addition to the members of the Hungarian Cave Rescue Service, the members of the Bakony Cave Rescue Service, the Northern Hungarian Association of Cave Rescuers, the firefighters of the 1st District of Disaster Management also joined and practiced together.
We also gained a wealth of useful experience in performing tasks that seemed simple at first glance.

4 members of the Hungarian Cave Rescue Service attended an international cave rescue training course specifically for women at the invitation of the Cave Rescue Service of Slovenia (Jamarska Reševalna Služba). The course was being held from 24 June to 1 July, 2018 in Scezna, Slovenia.
In addition to the Hungarian delegation, cave rescue women (and some lucky men) from Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Turkey and Ukraine also came to the training.
The aim of the training was on the one hand to share and deepen the knowledge of rope technique used for rescue (which is becoming more and more uniform throughout Europe), on the other hand to transfer the knowledge that enabled women who might be physically weaker than their male counterparts to participate effectively in a rescue.
Our first semester rescue practice was organized on the weekend of June 2-3, 2018, after consultations and obtaining permits, in the Spiral Cave of the Mecsek Mountains. We had training in this cave before. The exciting cave has put us to the test again with its heavy narrows, narrow stream branch, and serious pit system.
Our regional unit in southern Hungary went fist to the cave, with a doctor and medical equipment, took care of the injured and kept him warm. A command point was set up on the surface where the rescue work was organized and directed. The central rescue team and the other regional units arrived to the rescue scene in several groups. We have built our cave phone system as well as rigged the rope work for vertical transportation.

Cave tours for injured children from five special institutions took place for 6 weeks from Halloween to Santa Claus, organized by the Verocs Movement and Experience Therapy Department and with the participation of the Hungarian Cave Rescue Service.
About the background: In the summer of 2017, thanks to the support of many enthusiastic internet voters, we became the winners of the DM-Together for Each other competition, so our "Be a Cave Rescuer" program could be executed.
Thanks to the support, the children were able to get acquainted with the cave rescue stretcher and our rescue equipment. The most popular equipment was the rescue triangle: the ladder climbing was substituted with vertical movement with the help of the rescue triangle- This was received with a wide smile.
We made a bold decision and chose a very important and essential way to provide help. Because it is well known that blood is always needed, as a rescue team, we almost feel obligated to donate blood. We hereby ask you to stand by us and help.
Date: 17. November 2017 between 14.00 and 18.00 at Szemlő-hegyi cave entrance (Pusztaszeri str. 35. Budapest-1025)
