Tree Rescue Manual
A manual of tree rescue techniques for emergency responders and rescue professionals.
Developed by vertical rescue professionals and climbing arborists, the Tree Rescue Manual is a massive book designed to assist professional rescue teams with responding to tree work accidents.
Whilst it is a requirement in Australia for tree climbing teams to include a rescue climber, the capacity of the tree industry to respond to complex incidents or severe injuries is limited, and an injured tree climber may rely on the ability of professional rescue teams to successfully perform an aerial rescue.
The book is jam-packed with both basic and complex rescue techniques, each illustrated in careful detail.
A vast range of rescue techniques are covered, including all kinds of climber rescues, tree crush entrapment rescue, pole-top rescue, climber crush injuries, electrical hazards and dealing with suspended loads.
