Ice Diving Operations - 1162
By Walt “Butch” Hendrick & Andrea Zaferes 430 pages, Fire Engineering Pub. Have you been trained for Real Life Ice Operations? If you learned how to ice dive by cutting a hole, with tenders standing on the ice and divers climbing out and walking back to shore, then what will happen on a real call? An actual call means that the ice was too thin to support the victim, so it won’t support a dive team. Most of what was learned in a standard ice diving course rapidly falls apart. This is the most complete and realistic book on ice diving SAR. Learn about state-of-the art techniques and procedures never before put in print. Learn how to avoid costly training and equipment purchase mistakes. And learn how to make sure that your tenders and divers can complete the most important mission of all: GO HOME when the job is done.
