Our standard set up has the attendant attached using two ascenders and tied in to the end of the rescue line with 2.5m of rope for mobility (see diagrams linked below). The attendant can position him/herself above, below or beside the patient. This set-up can be used whether the litter is hauled horizontally or vertically (to go through a small hole for example).
For regular horizontal hauls the litter attendant can choose to IN-RIDE or OUT-RIDE. Our standard litter attendant set up will adapt to either method without modification. For standard vertical hauls we will tend to use IN-RIDING.Read More »
