Description

Firefighters, park rangers, search and rescue squad members, EMS administrators, and anyone whose public safety duties include river, flood or swiftwater rescues will find this densely illustrated, fact-filled book to be of tremendous value. It is written to save lives--yours and your team mates as well as those of the people you rescue. Swiftwater rescue is one of the most dangerous types of technical rescue--this book shows you how to say alive and succeed. You'll learn: swiftwater hydrology; what special equipment you need for swiftwater rescue, including individual and team gear and personal protective equipment; rigging for river rescue, including basics like haul systems and anchors as well as advanced techniques like highlines and tethered boat lowers; shore-based rescues; how to use helicopters for swiftwater rescues, including employment considerations, short hauls, hoist operations and rescue swimmers; how to deal with special situations like flood channel rescues, cars in the water, and foot and body entrapments; swiftwater incident command; medical considerations for river and flood rescue; and much, much more.
