The Buzz on Technical Rescue

Each year, the expansion of the technical rescue segment provides more knowledge for our readers and listeners. Listed are a few of the topic areas that you will be seeing during the coming year.

• Early 2013 and 2012 have providing another wave of unique challenges to the emergency response community. These challenges included multiple large-scale natural disasters and a number of man-made tragedies. In response to these events, Firehouse® Magazine and will be providing lessons learned and incident-based coverage related to many of these events.

• Our enhanced coverage of aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) continued with the second segment in the series in our April issue.

• As a follow-up to our recent podcast “SUSAR and the Air National Guard – A Joint Effort” we will be working on developing more content related to our military firefighting and emergency response operations.

• Also look for our quarterly e-newsletter, which highlights many of the current activities in the technical rescue field.
