Description
Swiftwater Rescue offers an in-depth look at swiftwater rescue for the professional-firefighters, park rangers, EMS personnel-as well as anyone who might be faced with the possibility of a flood or swiftwater rescue. Topics include basic rescuer safety considerations, river hydrology, equipment, shore-based, boat-based, and in-water rescue techniques, medical considerations, rigging for river rescue, incident command, and swiftwater training. Densely illustrated with line drawings and black & white photographs, the book also covers advanced subjects like the use of helicopters in swiftwater rescue and special situations like low-head dams and flood channel rescues.
