Rescue Vehicles by Margaret Parrish

Rescue Vehicles showcases the incredible machines used to save people in extreme situations, from fire trucks and ambulances to rescue helicopters and lifeboats. The most impressive features and feats of each rescue vehicle are highlighted, while action photos show rescue vehicles at work - on land, in the water and in the sky. There are 'Stats & Facts' boxes loaded with technical details, a glossary that explains specific terminology and technology and a 'Did you know?' section that includes little-known facts about each rescue vehicle. Find out about...The Bronto Skylift, a fire truck that can reach 72 metres into the air. The R44 helicopter, a police force's eye in the sky that tracks criminals using infrared technology. The Medtec Saturn, an ambulance that carries over 200 items of life-saving equipment. The P-3 Orion, an old military airtanker that is now used to blitz forest fires.
