CMC Rescue, a leader in technical rescue and work-at-height equipment and education, has transformed its authoritative Rope Rescue Field Guide into a full-featured phone app packed with valuable charts, diagrams, and how-to information. Users can even customize this great, easy-to-use app with their own Notes and Favorites for quick reference in the field. It’s free to download for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, and a version for the Android platform is expected to debut in June.
The new app gives you access to CMC Rescue’s entire 132-page Rope Rescue Field Guide, complete with full-color illustrations. The guide includes everything from equipment overviews and tutorials to sections on knots, communications, and anchor, belay, and M/A systems.
Its Favorites capability allows you to build your own quick reference section. By tagging a section as a Favorite, you can access it without scrolling through the guide. Notes allows you to customize the guide by creating your own notations that are attached to the page of the section you are browsing. Either type in your notes or cut and paste essential information from e-mail or other sources. Notes are also accessible from the navigation bar at the bottom of each page.
The Rescue Field Guide app complements the CMC Rope Rescue Manual, Rope Rescue Field Guide, and Confined Space Field Guide, as well as the CMC Rescue website (www.cmcrescue.com). It allows users to access rescue references instantly in the palm of their hand, optimize their field guide for specific specialties, and browse products, tutorials, and user guides.
Best of all, CMC’s Rope Rescue Field Guide app works anywhere. Rescue assets can be accessed or managed with or without cell reception or WiFi. So whether your job keeps you in the station or takes you out into the field, you can stay on top of your profession wherever you are. For more information about the new app, visit www.cmcrescue.com
