Research background: One of the important services in a specific mountain environment is the Mountain Rescue Service. The rescue services shall immediately provide the professional, medical, technical and other necessary assistance in an emergency on the instructions of the coordination centre or their emergency call operation centre. In the alpine environment, in addition to other rescue services, the Mountain Rescue Service implements organizational, technical and other measures to provide assistance in distress. This service is equipped for this purpose with technical and material resources.

In some cases, visitors get into trouble and demand the help they need to be provided at the appropriate level.
Methods: The article will use the analysis of the final reports of the Mountain Rescue Service for the past period. The method of comparison will also be used, where the individual years will be compared with each other with emphasis on certain criteria.

Using deduction and induction, the obtained data will be correctly evaluated and logical conclusions drawn.
