Rope Rescue: Principles and Practice, Fifth Edition provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of rope rescue, including scene size-up, personal protective equipment (PPE) and rope rescue equipment, medical considerations, patient evacuation, and special rescue operations.

  • A wealth of visual skill drills have been added throughout the book to illustrate step-by-step instructions with photos for completing specific skills.
  • The new Size-Up chapter helps define the role of the awareness-level rescuer in scene size-up, including how to interview witnesses to determine victim location and the scope of the incident.
  • Expanded coverage of preplanning and hazard identification, risk assessment, and maintaining situational awareness is included in the new edition.
  • New content has been added on the SMART method to developing an Incident Action Plan, hazard specific PPE, rope systems equipment, rigging principles, and active fall protection
