9781943553143: Highway Patrol Officers (Police: Search & Rescue!)

In June 2015, the California Highway Patrol received an urgent call for help. A 17-year-old boy had fallen down a steep waterfall while hiking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Highway patrol officers raced to the scene in a rescue helicopter. The terrain was too rugged for the chopper to land, so the pilot hovered near the waterfall while the flight crew hoisted the injured boy to safety, saving his life. Dramatic, true stories will keep readers turning the pages as they learn about how these skilled police responders stay calm, think quickly, and act fast to address serious situations in which people or animals are lost or in danger. In addition, readers will go behind the scenes to see how these everyday heroes train for a wide variety of emergency rescues, so that they are ready to help day or night.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—Filled with action-packed photos and straightforward information, the volumes in this set will have readers on the edge of their seats as they vicariously experience the often thrilling operations of police search-and-rescue workers. Although some of the real-life examples may be scary to some, the outcomes are generally positive and provide students with an honest look at jobs that are often dangerous, but satisfying for the brave individuals who risk their lives to save others. Vibrant spreads as well as brief yet fascinating text boxes add further interest to topics that will leave readers breathless and eager to learn more. VERDICT These well-written and highly engaging books earn high marks and will appeal to thrill seekers.
