The main objective of the Mountain Rescue Service is to assist and rescue in the mountains, on the rocks, in the caves and on the other unapproachable places where rescuing requires application of special knowledge and equipment.
Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro consists of alpinists, speleologists, mountaineers, skiers, doctors and pilots who have completed the complex trainings for rescue people in the mountains and trained for all mountain rescue techniques, including the rescue with helicopter and search on unapproachable terrains.
The personnel that is engaged within the Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro are: 16 mountain rescuers, 15 apprentice for mountain rescuers, 3 doctors-rescuers, 3 MRSM instructors and 17 honorary members of the MRSM. The titles within MRSM are the following: supporting member, apprentice for mountain rescuers, speleological rescuer, doctor rescuer, mountain rescuer, helicopter rescuer, MRSM instructor and honorary rescuer.
Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro cooperates with all agencies and organizations in Montenegro that are aiming at saving people. (Department of Civil Security and Emergency Management of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro , Emergency Service, Police, Army of Montenegro, Services for civil protection and rescue , Red Cross of Montenegro ...).

In collaboration with the Regional Development Agency for Bjelasica, Komovi and Prokletije, Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism and Local Municipalities of Zabljak and Kolasin, MRSM implements the project "Establishment of the MRSM Intelligence points in Zabljak and Kolasin".

The project aim is that the Intelligence points grow to the Mountain Rescue Service stations trough the equipping and the training. According to the Project, Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro is in charge of the organization of the trainings, Regional Development Agency for Bjelasica, Komovi and Prokletije and the Ministry of Sustainable Development of Tourism are in charge of procurement of equipment, while the Local Municipalities of Zabljak and Kolasin will provide the premises for MRSM Intelligence points. If the implementation of the project will be conducted as planned, we expect that conditions for the formation of MRSM stations in Zabljak and Kolasin will be gained in 2014.
Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro has been recognized as Specialist unit in the Strategy for Emergency Situations of Montenegro. MRSM has signed the Memorandum of vocational-technical cooperation with the Department of Civil Security and Emergency Management of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro , so the largest number of mountain rescue is carried out in cooperation with the Avio-helicopter Unit of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Montenegro and due to the rapid transport with helicopter a lot of people were rescued from sure death.
The main task of the Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro is prevention in the mountains. This is a set of actions, rules and recommendations that affect the reduction of accidents in the mountains. The area that defines human security in the mountains here in Montenegro is not legally defined yet, so none security recommendation given by the Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro is not obligatory for visitors of the mountains.
Some of the neighboring countries (Croatia) have a law on the Mountain Rescue Service, which defined the rights and obligations of the Mountain Rescue Service in the field of public safety in the mountains. Croatian experience would be very usefull for Mountain Rescue Service of Montenegro because bringing of the law on Mountain Rescue Service would affect the safety of many people in the mountains and therefore would make our mountains as safe places for visitors.
