The CMC Confined Space Rescue Technician Manual is the textbook for confined space rescue courses taught by the CMC School. It is the official textbook for the California State Fire Marshal’s state certified confined space rescue courses, and the training manual of choice for fire departments and industrial rescue teams nationwide. All chapters have been updated and expanded for the second edition, and three new chapters have been added: Communications, High Point Anchor Systems, and Permitting Confined Spaces. Color has been added to most of the more than 150 illustrations for improved clarity.
CMC’s instructors are recognized experts in confined space entry and rescue training and operations. Their input in refining this manual ensures that it contains the most practical, up-to-date information on laws and regulations for confined space entry, development of a rescue team, assessment and preparation for entry, organization of an emergency response, monitoring for and managing atmospheric and other hazards, rescue equipment, and patient transport
