Emergency Rescue Training

This booklet may be of assistance to rescue after a catastrophic event.


This student manual on rescue contains a resume of
most of the subjects covered in the Office of Civil Defense
instructor guides on basic, light, and heavy duty rescue.
It is a guide to emergency "spot" training of expanded
rescue forces by civil defense rescue cadremen who have
been trained in OCD-approved light or heavy duty rescue.
It is not intended to replace the complete lesson plans in
the instructor guides. Rescue cadremen should deter-
mine the training time for each subject on the basis of:

A. Background experience of personnel to be trained.
B. Ratio of untrained to trained personnel.
C. Equipment available.
D. Time available for training.
