Management of Multi-Casualty Incidents in Mountain Rescue Evidence-Based Guidelines of the International Commission for Mountain Emergency Medicine
Blancher, M., Albasini, F., Elsensohn, F., et al. (2018). Management of Multi-Casualty Incidents in Mountain Rescue: Evidence-Based Guidelines of the International Commission for Mountain Emergency Medicine (ICAR MEDCOM). High Altitude Medicine & Biology. 19(2).
The authors outline what mass casualty incidents (MCI) are possible in mountain settings, such as avalanches, ski lift accidents, and less common injuries such as those from lightning, landslides, and other risks. They conclude that mountain rescue teams need to be prepared for MCI by conducting regular training and establishing cooperative relationships with rescue services and avalanche safety authorities.
