The CMRS works in close cooperation with state authorities and local and regional self-government units, institutions, the Croatian Armed Forces, health care and social welfare institutions, the Croatian Mountaineering Association and other legal and natural persons from the field of culture, physical education and sports, tourism, protection of nature and environment as well as transport. It also cooperates closely with public institutions and nature protection bodies responsible for the protection and preservation of nature and environment of mountains. Moreover, the CMRS operates very often in urban and other non-mountainous areas as well, performing jobs that include height, tunnels or pipes, providing assistance in cases of road or sea accidents, and in a number of extreme sports (paragliding, mountain biking, rafting, etc.). In addition to rescue and first aid services to injured casualties in hardly accessible or inaccessible areas, the CMRS pays great attention to education and prevention, i.e. prevention and avoidance of accidents in inaccessible terrains, particularly mountains. Namely, mountain rescue teams are present at all major Croatian ski resorts (Sljeme, Platak, Bjelolasica), rock climbing area in the Paklenica National Park, as well as at various extreme sport events, such as mountain bike races, sport climbing competitions and more.
