search and rescue service. Rjukan
is a small village in the middle of the southern Norway.
Situated in middle of the path between Oslo and Bergen in Tinn
county, at the plateau of
Hardangervidda and in the state of Telemark.
We are 25 years in
2007, and in these years we have responded in many hundred
missions, both in summer and winter. We have special educated
dogs to search for people who have gone wild in the wilderness,
has been taken and buried by an avalanche, or has been trapped
in collapsed buildings after an earthquake. Rjukan lag was in
