The National Alpine Cliff and Cave Rescue Corps (CNSAS) is an operational division of the Italian Alpine Club (CAI), with its own declaration, constitution and general rules, approved by the general assembly, the CAI's highest governing body. The organization is based on Regional Services, coordinated on a national level, to which the different national schools also report. Each Regional Service is composed of so-called Delegations (covering alpine rescue) and Zones (for cave rescue), which in turn are divided into Stations (either alpine or caving).
The more than 7000 members of the CNSAS are all expert climbers or cavers of proven experience and capabilities, with a basic knowledge of medical rescue. Their specialized and frequent training are the best proof of their high professionalism, which is put to use during rescue in harsh, inaccessible or hostile environments.
