Dear FireRescue1 Member, 

I’m excited to share our latest eBook, Search & rescue: From forcible entry to finding life, a go-to resource that includes valuable safety information for crews.  

What’s inside: 

  • A real-life story of one crew's dramatic rescue of several children 
  • A back-to-basics look at VEIS 
  • A training officer's guide to primary search training 

►I encourage you to read and share this eBook with your members, considering the role of each member of the team – and whether they are prepared. 

Stay safe and take care. 

— Janelle Foskett
