Experience heart-pounding rescues with real-life heroes! Here is a compelling guide to the exciting world of the emergency rescue services. Dramatic full-color photographs of real incidents, equipment, clothing, and rescue techniques offer insight into the dangerous work of the heroes who risk their lives to save others. See the protective clothing that firefighters wear, the first rescue vehicles, how animals can save people's lives, and what equipment an ambulance carries. Learn how to survive until help arrives, about the work of international aid organizations, how passengers were rescued after the Titanic sunk, and how people survive in times of war. Discover how rescuers locate people in collapsed buildings, why radio became essential for rescue services, how mountain rescue teams operate, what happens when a plane crashes, and much, much more.
