It covers in detail the public liability of each service including liability for the negligent treatment of victims and negligent rescue. It deals with employer's liability in respect of the unique tasks carried out by employees of emergency services. Other issues specific to one or more of the services such as malfeasance and disciplinary proceedings are also covered in detail.Written by leading practitioners this is the only publication that sets out the statutory framework in which the emergency services operate and examines the potential liabilities that arise from the performance of their statutory duties.
