The Technical Rescue Riggers Guide, Third Edition, is here!
Over a year in the making, the new third edition is the completely updated version of original Technical Rescue Riggers Guide by Rick Lipke with technical contributions by Kirk Mauthner - This is the most important reference guide for modern rescue in decades.
This great new pocket reference is absolutely the most comprehensive and complete rope rescue guide available today. It shows extremely safe, modern techniques, in 224 pages, with over 600 clear illustrations and photos, from basic knots and anchors, to highlines, helo rescues, and much more!
This fully updated edition incorporates the DCTTRS (Dual Capability Two Tension Rope System) pioneered by EMBC in Canada. The DCTTRS system is rapidly becoming the standard in progressive rope work.
This new edition is printed in full colour on high tech storm proof paper and completely cross-referenced with handy safety reminders throughout.
The Technical Rescue Riggers Guide is small enough and rugged enough to take into the field rescue after rescue.
This is not an instructional text, but rather a quick pocket reference guide for personnel already trained and familiar with modern rope rescue. However, it can be used as an educational enhancement in classes taught by a competent instructor. A portion of the sale of this guide goes to support volunteer mountain rescue.

I'D Self braking descender with antipanic function. Multi-functional handle allows the user to: unblock the rope and control the descent with the hand on the free end of the rope; move more easily on horizontal or low-angle terrain, thanks to the button on the handle; and get into position without having to tie off the device. Anti-panic function is engaged if the user pulls too strongly on the handle : brakes and stops the descent automatically. Anti-error safety catch to reduce the risk of an accident due to incorrect installation of the device on the rope. The shape of the cam is designed to improve rope glide when ascending. The safety gate on the moving side plate helps prevent dropping the device and facilitates installation of the rope when passing intermediate anchors. Pivoting cam facilitates taking up the slack in the rope. Can also be used to make a reversible haul system, and for short ascents (in conjunction with a FOOTPRO foot loop and an ASCENSION handled rope clamp). The I'D L only is designed for rescue operations. Lowers heavy loads up to 250 kg for I'D S and 272 kg for I'D L (only for expert users; consult the Instructions for Use for the device).
