Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Freeman L. Vickers, EMT-P(City of Houston)
Description: This is a rescue training manual that deals specifically with rescue from man-made structures and confined spaces utilizing rope rescue techniques. It contains one appendix, a glossary of terms, and an index . It is well organized and adheres to its stated objective .
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive training manual to teach technical rope rescue to persons working in the industrial setting. This is a needed addition to the field of rope rescue and worthy of the dedication and effort invested in its creation. It has "hit the nail on the head" with its objective.
Audience: It is written mainly for persons in the industrial rescue field (industrial fire brigades, etc.), but may be applicable to confined space rescue teams and municipal fire rescue teams as well. It is limited to structural and confined space applications and does not address wilderness water or vehicle rescue. The instruction presented stays true to its stated purpose. The authors' techniques and methodology comply with accepted techniques and practices in use in the field of rope rescue.
Features: This book addresses the rescue of sick or injured persons from elevated structures or confined spaces, and does so in great detail. I find this very helpful for the beginner. The artwork is very clear and instructive. Uniquely, NFPA 1006 and 1670 are addressed in a question and answer format that helps clarify their meaning and application. I find few if any gaps in the information presented or the application to the specific topic to which it is intended to be applied.
Assessment: The authors have done an excellent job in this first effort. Knowledge, experience, organization, and professionalism are exhibited in this work. The collaborative effort with Thomas Vines (High Angle Rescue Techniques, Mosby Year Book, Inc. 1997), a noted authority on rope rescue, only adds to its credibility. A teaching manual on this topic has long been needed. I find a few personal differences where application and implementation are concerned, but as the authors remind us, "there are numerous right methodologies." This book looks to be the standard reference for industrial rescue rope training.
