Encompassing seven titles, each book steps the reader through the corresponding applicable content in the 2008 Edition of NFPA Standard 1006, Standard for Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications. Combining the knowledge and practical skills necessary to meet the Operations Level of the Standard, each book in the series trains emergency responders to take the appropriate actions to prepare, respond to, and mitigate an incident involving technical rescue.
