With over 50,000 copies sold, the CMC Rope Rescue Manual has become the standard reference for many departments and rope rescue training programs. The manual reflects what we have learned through many years of responding to rescues and teaching thousands of students. Now in its fourth edition, the manual has been updated and several new chapters have been added. The extensive use of illustrations and step-by-step procedures help the reader to develop or expand rope rescue knowledge and skills. Topics include: safety, equipment, rappelling, pick-offs, stretcher evacuations, patient packaging, improvised high anchor points, and organizing the response. More than 240 illustrations and photos take you step-by-step through lowering and raising systems, mechanical advantage, and rappel-based rescues. Quality paperback, 208 pages.
