Search and Rescue Fast Strapping for Victim Rescue

In this video we will be discussing and demonstrating another method for Fast Strapping - Which is considered to be a general term used to describe a variety of techniques for quickly applying webbing to a victim to assist with their rescue or extraction. The specific method reviewed in this video is what I like to refer to as the "Shoulder Hitch"...….

If you're a Firefighter, in the Military, a Police Officer and/or participate in a R.T.F. (Rescue Task Force) or T.E.M.S. (Tactical EMS) Team than you can benefit from watching this video...….

REMEMBER for any Fast Strapping technique to be practical it should satisfy the following key elements:
1. Be Fast
2. Be Efficient
3. Be Effective
4. Be "relatively" Safe - Causing no major harm to the Victim or you as the Rescuer
5. Be executed without ever having to completely let go of the webbing anywhere in the process
6. For FFs: Be performed while wearing full PPE, including FF gloves
7. Be able to be executed in ZERO visibility without making any major mistakes

If anyone of these 7 factors can not be accomplished - You need more practice or you should strongly consider using a different Fast Strapping technique.
