    Presentation Transcript
    1. Rope Rescue Awareness Level Training

    2. Learning Objectives: • En Route Considerations • On Scene Size Up / Additional Resources • Command Roles and Functions • Initial Access • Building The “Medic Line”

    3. En Route Considerations: • Mechanism • Fall • MVA Over Embankment • Number of Patients • More Patients Require More Resources • Location • Over Embankment • Distance to Patients From Roadway

    4. On Scene Size-Up: • Confirm Number of Patients • Visual • Verbal • Physical Contact • Medic Line Appropriate? • Additional Resources = Rope Dependant Vs. Non-Rope Dependant • Steep or Vertical Environment • Zone III Technical Rescue Response for Rope • Low or Medium Angle • Ladder 11 or Station 12 Personnel

    5. Command Roles and Functions: • Establish Command • Locate Command Post • Assigning Rescue Group Supervisor • RGS must be identified early and assigned. RGS will be responsible for the Rope System if Technician Level ( Rope Dependant ). • Establishing Staging Area • Direct Zone III Resources to Staging • Staging Area Manager Groups “Like Resources” • Establish Work Zones

    6. Initial Contact and Access: • Visual • Line of Sight to Patient(s) • Verbal • Voice Contact to Confirm Number of Patients • Physical Contact via Medic Line • Slope Appropriate for Medic Line Access. Allows initial actions to be performed: • Triage • Patient Stabilization • Basic Treatment

    7. Medic Line Considerations • A Medic Line is a “Non-Rope Dependant” assistance tool designed to allow patient access where footing is compromised. • The weight of the Rescuer is predominately on the ground, and the Medic Line is used as a handhold much like your weight is predominately on the steps of a staircase, and the handrail offers handhold support.

    8. Building The “Medic Line” Establish Anchor Point Beware of Open Hooks

    9. Building The “Medic Line” Anchor Options Continued….

    10. Rescuer Attachment Seat Harness / Caribiner / Prussik / Rope Bag

    11. Rescuer Considerations • Take basic EMS equipment to initiate Patient Care: • Trauma Pads • Cling or Coban • C-Collar • EMS Gloves / Goggles • Radio • PPE for Environment • Bunker Gear • Eye Protection

    12. Rescuer Considerations After patient contact and starting basic patient care, the Medic Line attendant can expect to assist a Rescue Team with patient packaging and extraction if complete patient packaging is needed due to injuries.

    13. After the Incident • Inventory and Inspect all rope equipment for signs of damage or excessive wear. • If in doubt as to the condition of Rope Rescue equipment, take it out of service and email Logistics.

    14. Remember- Tying knots and building the Medic Line are perishable skills….. PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!
