Ropes 3:1 System in Patient Evacuation
May 16 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The 3:1 is the classic mechanical advantage system used by rescuers. It is reasonably easy to rig, is easy to add a progress capture device, provides an appropriate amount of mechanical advantage to raise one or two people, and with a few tweaks it can be converted into a simple 5:1 system.
