The Mountain Rescue Service is a well-known and popular institution among all people. It is made up of brave men and women who risk their lives every day by saving our lives.
Freedom of movement has returned to people’s lives. Many people will surely go to the mountains, forests and locations where nature is still untouched at the first opportunity. In these well-known, lesser-known or totally unknown locations, caution, however, is never superfluous. Suitable clothing and footwear should be chosen for any stay in the forest and nature and hiking. You should definitely bring food. All nature and hiking lovers need energy.
It is less known what members of the Mountain Rescue Services eat and eat (in order to perform their demanding tasks). Different members of these groups are engaged in various actions to rescue lost, missing and injured people in nature. However, all members of these groups have one thing in common. As they perform heavy physical work and experience heavy physical exertion — nutrition is a common and key factor for divers, climbers, speleologists, skiers, and high-altitude climbers.
Many speleological volunteer initiatives have been making great efforts in the fight to protect drinking water for years. Drinking water is polluted by dumping waste in caves and underground pits.
High mountain climbers are mainly in charge of climbing high hills. In doing so, they move on more or less passable paths. Every climber’s best friends are walking sticks. With the help of walking sticks, climbers can more easily break through to people who are stuck on high slopes.
Climbers represent a higher category of lifeguards. Climbers (unlike climbers) do not have paved paths to break through to their goals. Climbers are literally climbing rocks. Climbers are acrobats who usually perform the most spectacular rescue actions.
Both disciplines require an exceptional amount of strength. Whatever the style of climbing. This is why energy-rich foods play a crucial role in their lives. Food carried by climbers and climbers must contain a large proportion of energy. Energy is released during the efforts to which they are exposed. The food must also be practical. That is why foods such as cocoa butter, nuts, and high-protein bars are popular among climbers. Climbers eat hard cheeses, sardines, fish, salami and prosciutto.
Skiers belong to the third category of the Mountain Rescue Service. Skiers operate mainly in the mountains. Skiers also ingest very large amounts of energy from practical and quality foods. That way, they can withstand the efforts of the mountain.
The average man should consume 2,500 calories a day. Professional cross-country skiers consume up to 8000 calories. After a good and quality cake, it is best to drink a glass of fresh quality milk. It is rare for any food to be as nutritious as milk.
Speleologists also belong to the order of rescuers. Speleologists often descend into the interior of the country through dangerous and unattractive holes. In these pits and holes, speleologists often encounter rather unexpected obstacles – piles of rubbish. Many speleological volunteer initiatives around the world and their active members have been tirelessly cleaning endangered caves and pits from waste for years. Caves and pits contain the largest supply of drinking water in the world. The tremendous efforts that volunteers put into protecting these most valuable natural resources.
Speleologists (like their fellow mountaineers) consume large amounts of energy. Speleologists must prepare even more for the possibility that they will be underground for longer than they planned. That is why the food they carry with them must be practical. The foods that speleologists eat include sausages, cheeses rich in fats and proteins, salami, and all foods that can be practically transported and consumed in not very practical conditions.
Divers also belong to the Rescue Services. Divers cannot eat meals while performing their tasks for obvious reasons. Divers are therefore literally in the natural habitat of various fish and other seafood. When they complete their tasks and come ashore, any type of food (foods rich in fat, energy and protein) is welcome.
