The numerous risks faced by today's fire service dictate that well trained and skilled firefighters be available to rescue one of their own. This new book serves as a ?one stop? reference for all aspects of rapid intervention operations, outfitting fire service personnel with the techniques and procedures they need to effectively take charge of rescue situations. Unique coverage presents more than one viewpoint or technique for critical skills, effectively arming readers with an awareness to try alternative techniques when a first attempt might not work. Safety is discussed at length and integrated throughout all rapid intervention topics, including firefighter self-survival, moving and raising the downed firefighter, roof operations, thermal imaging, the collapse environment, enlarging openings, and more.
