Fire Service Training. Rescue Practices. (Revised).
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
One of a set of fourteen instructional outlines for use in a course to train novice firemen, this guide covers the topic of rescue operations. Two types of rescue functions are recognized: the primary one consists of locating and saving trapped victims, and the secondary one of recovering bodies and making the area safe for other workers and equipment. The circumstances in which victims may be found and the techniques of carrying them to safety are described, and the precautions that the fireman should take for his personal protection are listed. This outline is to be used in conjunction with the International Fire Service Training Association's manual, "Fire Service Rescue and Protective Breathing Practices" (see note). (An outline of the whole course covering all fourteen topics briefly is provided in the first volume of the set--CE 016 662.) (ELG)
