For the first time, the Indian army will train a private medical team of Six Sigma at High Altitude Warfare School, Gulmarg, Kashmir. In India, Six Sigma is the only non-government organization in India that is trained by the maximum number of military and paramilitary forces – Air Force, ITBP, BSF, CRPF and NDRF. Six Sigma Healthcare is a prominent medical organization for providing free mountain medical services at high hills. Without any help or donations, Six Sigma is always ready for duty Anytime - Anywhere - Any Weather - Any Height.

Exercise includes the exercises on mountain medicines, latest mountain equipment, rock climbing, river crossing, peak climbing, rappelling, basic life support, advanced cardiac life support, communication on high altitudes, glacier and avalanche rescue, etc. The exercise is conducted for the first time in collaboration with the Indian Army. The aim is to train the "Medical Officer's of Six Sigma Team, because the organization is highly active on high altitudes medical services and rescue work. These life-saving skills will help them in better rescue management on high hills, said Dr. Pradeep Bhardwaj, Medical Director of Six Sigma High Altitude Medical Rescue Services.

Mountain medicine is the most difficult medical service. Every year, millions of people travel to high-altitude every year for recreation and for work. 20% of those traveling to altitudes below 5,500 meters (18,000 ft) are affected by some form of altitude illness.
