Forces Focus – Polish GOPR and LPR

This is a video showcasing a training mission for the Polish Mountain Volunteer Search and Rescue (called in Poland GOPR- Gorskie Ochotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe) groups along with the Polish division of HEMS – Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (in Poland called LPR – Lotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe) during an April day in the Bieszczady Mountains. While GOPR is not a military force, they certainly appear to be well equipped and trained.

Thanks to Radek

    if you like this one you should also look for something about Mountain Volunteer Search and Rescue in Tatra Mountains – TOPR (Tatrza?skie Ochotnicze Pogotowie Ratunkowe) – Tatra are completely different mountains than Bieszczady, more like Alps. GOPR & TOPR are the good spirits of our mountains!
    cheers form Krakow.

    Cool video, as a kid I grew up in the Bieszczady, Poland. These guys were always tough, but their equipment came a long way. Back then a lot of these guys would literally purchase their own gear, not sure how it is now but I suspect like most of us in the armed forces here in US we go out and get better gear.
