CMC Rope Rescue Manual - Revised 4th Edition
With more than 70,000 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 more than 35 years of responding to rescues and teaching thousands of students. Now in its revised fourth edition, the manual has been updated to include the most current products and techniques. 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, litter 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.
