Not only do we get to spend time with family and friends during the holidays, but we get to do so with time off from work. However, not everyone gets a few extra days off around the holidays. In fact, more than 3% of the European workforce will be working on the holidays this year.
This holiday season, we’re highlighting the men and women who work during this time, from ski patrol to mountain rescue. Important work needs to be done around the clock, and that’s where these people come into play. Without their hard work year-round, many people would be affected around the world. This week, we’re taking a look at those in Search and Rescue and Mountain Rescue.
Those working in the Search and Mountain Rescue are on call year-round, all day long. They work hard to keep up with their rope climbing, first aid, and even water rescue skills. When someone is in need, they’re called to the scene to come to the rescue, no matter what.
From forest fires to lost hikers, search and rescue teams work hard year-round. Search and rescue personnel go through rigorous training to ensure that they are capable of performing under pressure and in dangerous situations. Often, their jobs require travel and long hours saving people and preventing disastrous situations from happening.
Take time to thank someone you know in the industry this holiday season for the hard work they do and treat them to a special gift to keep them safe and at their best when on the job!
