Just Released! New Vehicle Rescue Book
My first published book,Vehicle Rescue & Extrication, was released in 1991. Since that time, a lot has changed; air bags, rescue tools, new techniques.
I set out several years ago to update that first edition. Well, the fruits of that labor are now available. The 2nd edition book has just been published.
I put 8 chapters in the new edition;
1- New Technology( include air bags)
2- Hybrid Vehicles
3- Vehicle Rescue Life Cycle
4- Vehicle Rescue Safety
6- Collision Trauma and EMS
A total of 352 pages of text. Almost 800 images and artwork. Lots of real-world action shots. Each chapter includes the appropriate NFPA 1670 objectives. At the end of the chpaters is a 2,500 word vehicle rescue glossary. It is the most comprehensive glossary ever compiled for our needs.
In January 2003, the Instructor Resource will be available. This is a CD-ROM that will include a complete lesson plan for everything in the book plus PowerPoint slide programs of all the images and artwork plus many more not published. Test questions, skills sheets, and notes to the vehicle rescue instructor are also included on the CD.
The book together with the CD package will be everything you need to know for dealing with the challenges of today’s vehicle rescue in one state-of-the-art book. This combined package will allow a department training officer to present a complete NFPA-compliant vehicle rescue program.
Online ordering is at:
To contact a sales representative directly, call 1-800-325-4177
I'll be standing by to answer any questions you have and to assist with your implementation of the book into your training curriculum.

I called a retailer the other day and was told the Instructor guide would be out in February to the tune of around $350. It's already in my 2003 budget!

If the first edition is any indication of the quality of this book- I can't wait!
Don't forget all the free copies for all your friends on the forums, Ron! (Especially the underpriveleged in Australia!!!)
Don't know about the instructors CD Rom- if that price is accurate, that just put it right out of my budget!Luke
