Are you interested in rescue resources that cover topics such as search and rescue, swiftwatLIFESAVERS: Paramedics and firefighters rescue a 23-year-old-woman trapped in her car off Molong Road. Photo: STEVE GOSCHer rescue, and motor vehicle rescue?

The library has compiled a small online collection of resources that cover the provision of rescue in the community. This includes links to NATSAR, the Emergency Management Handbooks on the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience website and several books we hold in our library.

At present, the list of current resources may be found at the library webpage Rescue Resources
