This edition is the completely updated version of original Technical Rescue Riggers Guide by Rick Lipke with technical contributions by Kirk Mauthner – This is the most important reference guide for modern rescue in decades. This great new pocket reference is absolutely the most comprehensive and complete rope rescue guide available today. It shows extremely safe, modern techniques, in 224 pages, with over 600 clear illustrations and photos, from basic knots and anchors, to highlines, helo rescues, and much more!
The Technical Rescue Riggers Guide is small enough and rugged enough to take into the field rescue after rescue.
The first edition sold over 150,000 copies and became the defacto world standard for safe, intelligent rope rescue.
This is not an instructional text, but rather a quick pocket reference guide for personnel already trained and familiar with modern rope rescue. However, it can be used as an educational enhancement in classes taught by a competent instructor.
