A man-lift rescue / extrication scenario was set-up at a former mill facility slated for demolition. Jamie Morelock (Toledo firefighter, NWOH Region 1 USAR team member, and instructor for Brotherhood Instructors) came to help instruct a crew of Huron firefighters on the technical aspects of this machinery rescue.
The scenario: a victim fell from one of the steps on the vertical lifting belt and became trapped above the 3rd floor. All of the electrical and mechanical components were on the 8th floor. When in use, this lift provided a quick vertical way up and down through all floors.
