Abstract:

"The Survival Officer and the Flight Surgeon have the difficult and complex job of obtaining, handling, and even maintaining a wide variety of safety and survival equipment. They have a job weighted with responsibility, for men's lives may depend on their thoroughness and efficiency. It is imperative, therefore, that they be fully informed about the equipment and that they keep abreast of all the latest developments. This manual has been prepared to help them in this task. It is not intended as a means of providing complete instruction in the use of safety and survival equipment. It is rather a training guide, with general but comprehensive coverage of the various items of safety and survival equipment. In addition, the writeups for most items list some technical features. In some instances, more space has been devoted to certain equipment than to others. Actually there is no way of gaging the relative importance of one piece of equipment over the others. For example, in some cases, a simple flashlight might prove more important than something as complex as an oxygen system. Therefore, the length of the discussion depends more on the complexity of the equipment than its importance. In other cases, where information is readily available, as in the case of instructions attached to the equipment itself, the information given here is abbreviated."--Preface.
