specialized rescue services occurred;

contributed to the emergency;
        (c) an individual who is rescued during the emergency
and his or her employer if the person was acting in furtherance of the employer's interests;
        (d) in cases involving the recovery of property, any
person having control or custody of the property at the time of the emergency.
    For the purposes of this Section, the term "specialized rescue services" includes, but is not limited to, structural collapse, tactical rescue, high angle rescue, underwater rescue and recovery, confined space rescue, below grade rescue, and trench rescue.
