    Default Rope Rescue

    Hey I am looking for a good Rope Rescue book for reference purposes. The operational and tech rope rescue course I took only handed us a limited information booklet that had only like 2 pictures in it. I am looking for something that has anchors, belays and different types of knots used in technical rescue all in 1 book if possible if you guys have any suggestions that would be great.

    California State Fire Marshal has a great Rescue Systems 1 (RS1) manual as well as a Low Angle Rescue Systems (LARS) with everything you mentioned.

    Engineering Practical Rope Rescue Systems by Brown. You should be able to find it on Amazon. In my area it is used by the local community colleges for their NFPA 1006 rope courses.

    A lot of the systems seem VERY over engineered in my opinion, but if you can filter through that, it is a good book.
