A noteworthy review of First Responders On the Scene from Booklist on April 1, 2022

A 10-foot fall into an ice cave, a missing toddler, a plane crash—these dangerous situations all feature in this entry in the First Responders on the Scene series (8 titles), which takes readers into the field with Search and Rescue (SAR) teams. A short introductory section is comprised of fast facts that give a general overview of what SAR workers do, some of the dangers they face, and job-related stats. Three narrative chapters follow—each describing the aforementioned, real-life rescue missions—giving readers a realistic, but not sensationalized, feel for how searches are conducted, how people are cared for once found, and some of the challenges SAR teams face. Crisp photos support the text, and a final ‘Think about It’ section contains critical-thinking questions to boost reader engagement.
