IFSTA Technical Rescue for Structure Collapse Book, 1st Edition
Since fire department personnel are usually the first responders to structural collapses, firefighters should be trained to locate and free victims from collapsed structures in the safest and most efficient way possible. IFSTA Technical Rescue for Structure Collapse is designed to go beyond the basic rescue skills detailed in the Fire Service Rescue manual to cover the skills a rescue technician needs to effectively respond to these types of incidents. This manual addresses the structural collapse portion of NFPA 1006 (Standard for Technical Rescue Personnel Professional Qualifications) and NFPA 1670 (Standard on Operations and Training for Technical Search and Rescue Incidents). 1st Edition (2003). 369 pages.
