Technical Rescue Handbook (11th Edition)


Technical Rescue Handbook (11th Edition)

This handbook is intended to provide a comprehensive instruction manual as well as point of reference for National Park Service (NPS) personnel involved in technical rope rescue. The techniques provided in the text reflect the consensus of acceptable practices for use with the NPS as established by subject-matter experts both internally and outside the agency.

This text has evolved from a few pages originally used as class handouts for the NPS Basic Technical Rescue Training Course starting in 1995. Rope rescue, like other emergency disciplines, constantly changes with advances in equipment designs, field testing and lessons learned from accidents. Many practices that were dogma in technical rescue have been invalidated through thorough analysis and destructive testing.
