Careers in Fire Departments' Search and Rescue Unit

Front Cover
Rosen Publishing Group, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 64 pages
This well-written career-resource title doubles as a tribute to the heroism, dedication, and courage that defines those who work in fire departments' search and rescue units. This handsomely designed book discusses how fire departments aided in the search and rescue efforts that took place after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Also discussed is the history of fire departments, which evolved from a water pump or ingine to a high-tech rescue rig--the heavy--whose crew can deal with earthquakes and freeway collisions. Also mentioned are eyewitness accounts of harrowing search and rescue operations and details on what kind of training fire department cadets undergo.
