rescue service

Creating a Rescue Service was the project’s priority and height to scale in 2013. A great gap has finally been bridged in the area of services that the climbers’ island needs to offer its visitors!

Thanks to the contribution of the Volunteer Rescue Team potential accidents on the island’s trails and climbs can now be dealt with due to the sufficiency in human resources, means, and know-how.

alternet knowing the needs of climbers and hikers of Kalymnos, has developed an android application for smartphones and tablets, free of charge for the Rescue package cardholders, includes an SOS risk button.

In case of an emergency, the owner of the application (climber or hiker) with a simple push of the button activates the GPS tracking system. A location signal is automatically transmitted via SMS to the base (alternet office) and to Rescue team interconnected mobile phones. The location is pinpointed on the digital map based on the coordinates of the SOS emission.

This application was developed in order to contribute to the effectiveness and direct action of the Voluntary Rescue Team.

It all started with an idea which was realized through daring, collective effort, and hard work.

...Participants state

We are proud of the end result and ready to offer our services wherever and whenever they are needed! Needless to say, we wish that all our visitors keep well, are careful when trekking on trails or climbing so that they may never be in need of the rescue service’s intervention! After all, our primary goal is to see that no accidents occur.
