HGSS: Dear tourists, Welcome to Croatia!

Dear tourists, Welcome to Croatia! We are the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service (CMRS). Google it. You might need us. We hope not. During your visit here, especially if you prefer to spend your time in nature (and in Croatia we do have that, big time! And it is great! Huge! Greatest ever!) we would like you to pay attention to a few things as it follows.
-  The air is clean, the sky is blue, the sea is great, mountains are high and then you get lost. Who you gonna call? 112 (emergency number in Croatia) and not GhostBusters.
- As much as we appreciate you and we hope that you do it yourself, please do not overestimate your skills. Doing so usually starts the “shit hit the fan” situation and then we end up driving you home. Sounds like a love song, but it is not. We'd prefer that you enjoy your holidays without us.
- The moment you put your flip-flops on your feet, hiking mode is off. Trust us on this one.

- If your are going hiking, please make sure your mobile is fully charged and do not waste it unnecessarily. You can tweet about what you saw when you come safely back to the Point of your departure.

- Water means life. Hydrate. Think about it.

- Doing selfies on the edge of the cliff can be the last thing you did before you figure out that a fali is a flight as well. Please, you do look great but go easy on those selfies. You do not need them that much.

 




- If you think that you might be in trouble out there on the mountain or in any other part of Croatia, you probably are. Do not hesitate to ask for help. Our ERS (Emergency Respond Units) such as CMRS will help you. But, the thing is, we are not mind readers. We tried, and it is not working. So, use your phone when in trouble. #112. Remember!

- Google Bura. Seriously. Google it.

Have a great stay in Croatia. And stay safe so you can come back next year.

Yours sincerely,

HGSS / CMRS


croatia full of life

Dragi turisti, dobrodošli u Hrvatsku.

Mi smo Hrvatska gorska služba spašavanja. Guglajte nas. Možda ćemo vam zatrebati. Mi se nadamo da vam nećemo trebati.

Dok ste u Hrvatskoj, i ako volite biti u prirodi (a u Hrvatskoj imamo puno prirode, naveliko! I sjajna je! Velika! Najveća ikad!) htjeli bismo vam skrenuti pozornost na nekoliko stvari:

- Zrak je čist, nebo plavo, more je veliko, planine visoke...i onda se izgubite. Koga ćete nazvati? 112 (broj za hitne slučajeve u Hrvatskoj), a ne Istjerivače duhova.

- Koliko god da cijenimo vaše znanje, nemojte precjenjivati vaše sposobnosti. Kad ih precijenite, dolazi do situacije 'megasranja' i na kraju vas mi vozimo doma. Možda vam to zvuči kao scenarij iz ljubavne pjesme, ali nije. Bilo bi nam draže da uživate u svom odmoru bez nas.

- Onog trenutka kada navučete 'japanke' na stopala, isključite opciju planinarenja u svojoj glavi. Vjerujte nam.

- Ako već idete u brda i planine, neka vam je baterija mobitela puna i štedite je. Ako želite nešto predivno iz prirode objaviti na twitteru, sačekajte da se vratite na mjesto odakle ste krenuli

- Voda znači život. Pijte je. Mislite na to.

- Slikanje selfieja na rubu stijene može biti posljednja stvar koju ćete napraviti prije nego shvatite da padate, a ne letite. Molimo vas, znamo da izgledate sjajno, ali ipak stanite na loptu s tim selfiejima. Nisu vam toliko potrebni.

- Ako u bilo kojem trenutku na planini pomislite da ste u problemu, vjerojatno jeste. ne oklijevajte zatražiti našu pomoć. Naše Hitne službe poput Gorske službe spašavanja će vam pomoći. Ali, nažalost, ne čitamo misli. Pokušali smo i to, ali ne ide. zato, kad ste u nevolji, koristite telefon. #112. Zapamtite!

- Proguglajte riječ 'bura'. Ozbiljno. Proguglajte je.

Uživajte u svom boravku u Hrvatskoj. I čuvajte se da se možete vratiti dogodine.

Srdačno vaša,
Hrvatska gorska služba spašavanja
