Abstract: Written in a clear style and assuming no prior knowledge of the law, 'Emergency Law' outlines the legal rights and obligations in the provision of emergency care to the sick or injured, as well as compensation for injury in the course of such efforts to assist others. It also covers the provision of fire and rescue services that may involve interference with property, and the rights of divers of emergency vehicles. The book refutes the myth that emergency service workers are likely to be sued for their actions. It reassures that the law is not waiting to catch them if they make a mistake but is sympathetic to the urgency of the circumstances.
