Mighty Machines: Fire Trucks and Rescue Vehicles 
by Jean Coppendale; photographs by various sources

In this book, vivid color photographs of machines at work jump off the page, and large type describes the machines, their parts and their uses. Glossaries explain essential terms, and suggested activities add to the fun. The big format and vibrant designs make the books perfect for kids to read alone or share with a friend. The thrill of the unknown just adds to the excitement of seeing (and hearing) a rescue vehicle. This book shows a variety of rescue vehicles along with the personnel who work on them, including:

  • Ladder trucks at a burning building
  • Helicopters dropping water on a forest fire and airlifting a stranded dog from a mountain pass
  • Airport rescue trucks with special lights and room for passengers
  • New York City's harbor fire boats
  • Helicopters and lifeboats rescuing sailors
  • Ambulances and air ambulances helping injured drivers
  • Police on their way to an emergency by car and helicopter
  • A police motorcade escorting a VIP
