Patient Packaging & Litter Handling Training

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.  LitterTraining_2Members were introduced to concepts and equipment  in the classroom on Tuesday night, moving to “hands-on” field training on Saturday morning.  We practiced  packaging LitterTraining_4patients 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.
