Rope Rescue & Rigging Field Guide - Grant Prattley
First Edition August 2014, Written and illustrated by Grant Prattley
Rope rescue needs to be done in a simple and efficient way with an acceptable level of safety with a minimum amount of gear.
Rope rescue response is firstly about the rescuers making sure we do not encounter any unnecessary risk and secondly about the casualty making their bad day better.
The Rope Rescue & Rigging Field Guide provides easy to reference practical reminders on essential field techniques for training and responding to rope rescue incidents.
This Field Guide contains only overview information on technical rescue systems and is therefore not a complete reference.
It is designed to be used by competent operators who have undertaken rope rescue training with a qualified instructor. The Field Guide is aimed at rescuers working in the back country and remote areas as well as off road and industrial situations.
