La Chamoniarde has under certain conditions, the tasks of organising the resources destined for the search of the rescue of those people lost or victims of mountain accidents. It carries out this task with the full collaboration with the national rescue network.
It takes part in research and development of rescue equipment. It runs some of the infrastructures used for rescue for the town of Chamonix Mont-Blanc.
It instigated and runs the safety radio network "Alert Mont-Blanc".
Knowledge of the Alpine environment and awareness of the conditions are together a guarantee of safety in the mountains. For this reason, La Chamoniarde is equipped with various aids and means of increasing public awareness of the risks inherent in mountain sports. It provides all year round information service on mountain conditions at the office of the OHM and the Pôle Montagne Risk.
Since 2002, La Chamoniarde has organised free awareness training days run by mountain guides. Schoolchildren, young members of Sport clubs, residents and holidaymakers can participate to these trainings. People interested in off-piste skiing can learn about avalanches, group behaviour, safety on glacier, awareness of information and how to read the terrain.
Alpine activities extend beyond borders as does our friendship which links us with our neighbours in the Aosta valley. The starting up of the Interreg project "safety around the Mont-Blanc range" has enabled us to strengthen our cooperation with the Fondation"Montagne Sûre" which is involved in similar activities.
