Technical Rescue
Trench Levels I and II
Author: Scott Richardson

Delmar Cengage Learning is pleased to introduce the Technical Rescuer Series!  Encompassing seven titles, each book steps the reader through the corresponding applicable content in the 2008 Edition of NFPA Standard 1006, Standard for Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications. Combining the knowledge and practical skills necessary to meet the Operations Level of the Standard, each book in the series trains emergency responders to take the appropriate actions to prepare, respond to, and mitigate an incident involving technical rescue. 

Foreword

 Fire departments across America are busy these days performing a growing number of emergency services for our citizens. We still per- form our vital firefighting duties but we have branched out and are now involved in many types of technical rescue operations as well. This book, Technical Rescuer: Trench Levels I and II is the newest and most advanced source of information for firefighters and rescue workers involved in trench and excavation emergencies. As you read through this book you will be introduced to some familiar and some brand new terms and principles involving trench res- cue. Issues such as the anatomical and physiological factors involved in trench collapse, the ingredients of a trench, safety and protective equipment, apparatus and tools and trench protective systems are just a few of the elements explained and discussed. There is a whole lot more to trench rescue than meets the eye, and this book will be your guide through this technical and difficult rescue process. The last section of the book, Trench Rescue Program Development, is a collection of three dynamic components of a trench rescue operation. It begins with a discussion of issues such as incident conditions, strategy, resource needs and area of isolation. It moves on into a discussion of the A.S.T.A.R.T. program which is a system for analysis, organization and development of special operations programs such as trench rescue. Finally, this book discusses something that is frequently omitted from technical and tactical manuals, leadership. The Leadership and Management chapter outlines some of the most important aspects of these processes and how they relate to technical rescue. Whether you are the newest member of a technical rescue team or the most senior officer, this book will be a resource that will improve your organizations performance at trench operations and sharpen your personal skills and abilities as well. Technical rescue and special operations are infrequent events that require a high level of expertise and technical knowledge. This text, “Technical Rescuer: Trench Levels I and II” will serve as your guide, and help you to become a successful, safe and effective technical rescue specialist at your next trench or excavation emergency.
