By Larry Collins, Captain, Los Angeles County Fire Department
Technical Rescue Operations, Volume II: Common Emergencies is the second in a series by Larry Collins.
Volume II covers responding to, managing, and conducting rescues in the í__ë_dailyí__ëí¬ setting of fire/rescue agencies. This includes the kind of technical rescues that confront firefighters and rescuers on practically a daily basis. This volume also explains how to handle more complex and large-scale rescue operations that challenge responders to apply solid rescue principals for longer periods of time, with the assistance required of additional resources and under more strict command and control because of the scope of the incident, its newsworthiness, crowds of people arriving on the scene, and getting the immediate attention of local or regional elected officials.
