CMC Rescue, a leading developer and manufacturer of equipment for rescue and work at height, has transformed its authoritative Rope Rescue Field Guide, and Confined Space Entry and Rescue Field Guide, into a full-featured app packed with valuable charts, diagrams, and how-to information. Users can customize this handy, easy-to-use app with their own Notes and Favorites for quick reference anywhere.

The comprehensive Rescue Field Guide app provides access to the entire 132-page CMC Rope Rescue Field Guide and the 87-page CMC Confined Space Entry and Rescue Field Guide. Complete with full-color illustrations, these guides include equipment overviews and tutorials, examples of common knots, standard communication techniques, and complete descriptions of various anchor, belay and M/A systems.

Its Favorites capability allows you to build your own Quick Reference section. By tagging a Section as a Favorite, you can access it without scrolling through the entire Guide. Notes allows you to customize the Guide by creating your own notations attached to the page of the section you’re browsing. Either type in your Notes, or cut and paste essential information from an e-mail or other source. Notes are also accessible from the navigation bar at the bottom of each page.

The CMC Rescue app complements the CMC Rope Rescue Manual and Field Guide, and Confined Space Entry & Rescue Manual and Field Guide. Users can access rescue references instantly in the palm of their hand, optimize their app for specific disciplines, and browse products, tutorials, and user guides.

Best of all, the CMC Rescue app works anywhere. Rescue assets can be accessed or managed without WiFi or cellular connectivity. Whether your job keeps you in the station or takes you out in the field, stay on top of your profession wherever you are. For more information about the CMC Rescue app, visit

Ratings and Reviews

Helpful but buggy on an ipad!

Troy iTunes

Has great much needed information for the rescuer but can not view full pages. App crashed twice... I didn't give it a third chance to crash. Go back to work on it CMC, then put it on the apple market when you have it right!

Knot Knowledge

Name optional

This app is a must for Rescue workers and Boy Scouts. Gives you the step by step on knots, and allows you to become proficient in the art of knots. Great App

Even better! Not sure why the one bad review, works great, images are high quality too. Thanks CMC!


The addition of the Confined Space Rescue Guide and the ability to add documents and photos (even videos) to my own notes and reference is huge. We are sharing this app department wide! Thanks again CMC, great work!
