About this title:

Synopsis: 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.

Review: SOS! With this well-known international distress call (it stands for Save Our Souls), many a stranded survivor of disaster has attempted to spread the word that help is needed--fast. And whether survivors are at sea, buried in earthquake rubble, lost on mountains, or trapped in a crashed car, remarkable rescue workers--human and animal--are equipped to rush in and save souls. Dorling Kindersley is renowned for its stunning reference books; Rescue is no exception. This guide to the thrilling world of emergency rescue service is chock-full of compelling photos of real incidents, rescue techniques, protective clothing, vehicles, and supplies. Informative text instructs readers how to survive until help arrives (it's not a comprehensive how-to, though) and allows them a peek at the lives of firefighters, mountain rescue teams, lifeguards, wartime rescuers, and natural and environmental disaster workers. From historical events (the Chernobyl meltdown, the Oklahoma City bombing, the sinking of the Titanic) to futuristic technologies in the works (mine-detector robots, battery-operated personal beacon devices for people at sea, radar flashlights that allow police to "see" through walls in a hostage situation), rescue situations and solutions never fail to fascinate. (Ages 9 and older) --Emilie Coulter
