Rescue Party

Top of page

Designed for civil defense rescue, this film demonstrates five stages of rescue in removing trapped or injured persons from a building damaged by bomb blast. It describes the functions of different members of a rescue party: local warden, damage-control officer, rescue leader, deputy and crew. We see how a systematic search is organized to locate and extricate casualties from fallen debris. Emphasis is placed on accurate recording and checking of information so that no trapped persons are overlooked.
