First-Person View From Patient Being Hauled

Postby Scott McCrea » May 31, 2010 1:45 pm

I was lucky enough to volunteer to be a patient during a downpour. Good times. Anyway, this is what it looks like when you get hauled up a cliff in Level 3 training at NCRC.

No. Not much anyway. I didn't realize that they tied it off at the wrong spot until I watched the video.

Yeah, noticed that. "Oops".

But seriously, great video. I'll reference it in the future.

I'm a HUGE fan of everyone taking a ride in a basket at least once. It's a great learning experience.

That cliff was also used by IQ students practicing counterbalance haul techniques.
