Hurricane Katrina: A Journey of Hope - Nonfiction
5.0 stars over 8 reviews

Description: Urban Search and Rescue, or USAR for short, is a discipline
that came into the forefront of public awareness after the events of 9-11
exposed the need for specialized crews that could effectively rescue those
trapped in collapsed structures made of reinforced concrete. Following those
tragic events, many states received funding from the Department of Homeland
Security to develop USAR capabilities. The work is dangerous, unglamorous, and
demanding, both physically and mentally. USAR crews must train to operate in a
variety of disciplines and be prepared to operate in all-hazard environments
ranging from natural disasters to terrorist events.

In September, 2005, Rhode Island deployed its trained but untested USAR Task
Force 1 (RITF1) to Mississippi in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. No amount
of training could prepare anyone for the destruction that was unleashed by the
25-foot storm surge that swept inland as Katrina made landfall. This book serves
to document some of the challenges and obstacles that RITF1 faced and overcame
along the way.

Free right now at Amazon for the Kindle - but as always, check the price before you "click" to purchase!

And in the US, it went back to a (reasonable) $5.95 a few hours after this post.
