In 2014, Slovenia was hit by an sleet hazard, which is considered the worst in the history since the ice shell covered the entire Slovenia, including the valley Šaleška dolina. Protection and recovery agents in the valley Šaleška dolina faced a major test, as natural disaster of this type had not yet occurred in this area. Despite being inexperienced, they made great efforts to protect inhabitants of the valley Šaleška dolina and their property. The most important role was played by the voluntary firefighters and civil protection as they removed the majority of broken trees and enabled road transport. Due to the dimensions of the natural disaster, after four years, restoration is still in progress and the consequences of the damaged forests are still being revealed.
