Recognised as a public utility in Romania, this association brings together all the mountain rescuers in the country. It is in charge of the management of mountain rescues and rescues in the mountains. It benefits from a large network deployed throughout the Romanian Carpathians with numerous chalets and rescue refuges set up at the foot of or inside the mountain ranges, to be able to intervene quickly in the event of incidents. The Salvamont can provide you with information on the state of the paths and markings, and on the weather forecast for the mountain range…
The name Salvamont is often associated with the word play 0salvamont (with a zero) which can be translated as “help”. Just type “0salvamont” on your telephone keypad to dial their emergency number 0725 826 668. As Romania is part of the European Union, the single emergency number 112 works legally.

If you are using a telephone with an operator in your country, don’t forget to dial the dialling code for Romania first: +40
The association has also set up an application available on GooglePlay and Appel Store, which allows to optimize the rescue, as well as to provide a lot of information. Please note that to use this application with a French operator, you must have a 3G/4G connection that works internationally.
