Rescue (technical assistance)
The dictionary of the German Standing Conference for Disaster Risk Management and Disaster Management describes salvage as a liberation of living beings (humans and animals) from a non-life-threatening situation, which however restricts their freedom of movement. DIN 14011 Fire Brigade - Terms describe mountains as the liberation and securing of dead or lifeless people or animals or of endangered property (works of art, gas bottles etc.) from the danger area. In the regulations of the Swiss Fire Brigade Association, rescue refers to the removal of "lifeless people and animals from the danger zone".
