Topics include: basic rescuer safety considerations, river hydrology, equipment, shore-based, boat-based and in-water rescue techniques, knots, rigging for river rescue, helicopters, incident command, and special situations like low-head dams and flood channel rescues. Written by Slim Ray, author of Swiftwater Rescue and an internationally-recognized authority on the subject. 78 pages.
