Guide to using Rescue Sheets

Extrication & New Technology
ISO 17840

The Rescue sheet: follows in principle a flowchart for the main actions of the first and second responders arriving at an accident scene, or performing towing and other activities afterwards.

The ERG (Emergency Response Guide: contains crucial and in-depth information linked to the rescue sheet (ISO 17840 parts 1 & 2), to inform training and development of rescue procedures. The headings/contents of the rescue sheet and the ERG information are aligned with each other, i.e. the ERG information works as an extension of the related rescue sheet.
