IMSARU returned to its monthly training schedule in September after an August devoted to fund raising. This month’s training topic was patient packaging and litter handling. Members were introduced to concepts and equipment in the classroom on Tuesday night, moving to “hands-on” field training on Saturday morning. We practiced packaging patients in our various litter options including the Stokes basket, Cascade breakdown litter, and a Sked at the compound. We then moved to Tablerock for a scenario using Rescue Randy as a fall victim requiring extrication along a path filled with obstacles. The day finished with an introduction to working as a litter attendant for a steep angle technical rescue scenario.
