In June 2015, the California Highway Patrol received an urgent call for help. A 17-year-old boy had fallen down a steep waterfall while hiking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Highway patrol officers raced to the scene in a rescue helicopter. The terrain was too rugged for the chopper to land, so the pilot hovered near the waterfall while the flight crew hoisted the injured boy to safety, saving his life. Dramatic, true stories will keep readers turning the pages as they learn about how these skilled police responders stay calm, think quickly, and act fast to address serious situations in which people or animals are lost or in danger. In addition, readers will go behind the scenes to see how these everyday heroes train for a wide variety of emergency rescues, so that they are ready to help day or night.
