The specific method reviewed in this video is what I like to refer to as the "Shoulder Hitch"...….<br /> <br /> 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...….<br /> <br /> REMEMBER for any Fast Strapping technique to be practical it should satisfy the following key elements:<br /> 1. Be Fast<br /> 2. Be Efficient<br /> 3. Be Effective<br /> 4. Be "relatively" Safe - Causing no major harm to the Victim or you as the Rescuer<br /> 5. Be executed without ever having to completely let go of the webbing anywhere in the process<br /> 6. For FFs: Be performed while wearing full PPE, including FF gloves<br /> 7. Be able to be executed in ZERO visibility without making any major mistakes<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> Click on this link for how to tie a Water Knot:<br /> <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6HUW">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6HUW</a>...<br /> <br /> Here are 2 links for purchasing 1 inch tubular webbing:<br /> <a href="https://cascade-rescue.com/pmi-1-inch">https://cascade-rescue.com/pmi-1-inch</a>...<br /> <a href="https://www.amazon.com/BlueWater-Tubu">https://www.amazon.com/BlueWater-Tubu</a>...<br /> <br /> Train, Stay Prepared, Be Aggressive, Make the Save - SURVIVE!<br /> Dale G.
