Vision, training and rehearsing are purposeful events.  Rarely can someone envision future events without understanding the past as there is no understanding or interpretation without history.  Training involves coaching, education, drills, guidance, discipline and a host of other “things”… in short, “training” can be disastrous if done inappropriately. Rehearsing however is something different.  Rehearsing involves the “personification” of what you are training for.  It is the ability to take what you have properly trained for and “work it out”… repetition, repetition, repetition.  Until it becomes “who” you are.

The stage is set.  The patient is non ambulatory and barely coherent. You show up on scene with a ton of gear… the question is “time”.  Doing more with less is a typical response from people who are wanting better training.  I propose, that is the wrong question or intent.  Getting more from less?  Less of what?  Gear is what is normally meant by this, but if all you can see is the “today and the now” and you want to rig better systems with less gear, I would be highly suspect that your goal will be achieved.  This is a larger topic for later, but I want to plant the seed now.

In the video below, you may find minor corrections you’d like to see, manner of techniques may be in question and possibly even a confusion as to why the system they used was even set up.  As mentioned above, the patient is defined and the rescue is now underway.  My question though is this… “have you already prepped, rehearsed and trained for this”?  If not, what is your default? Anyone can navigate from the backseat.

Does this system meet your criteria for the given scenario?  What would you do differently and why?

 

So here is a bit of what you just watched.  The rescue was successful.. In that it happened.  Nobody got hurt.  Again, my question is “Did it happen within the time frame necessary”?

So ultimately, success or failure is always predicated on 3 Blocks… and the levels of integration of these components or blocks will dictate the levels of success or failure.  Rescue Response Gear and Rigging Lab Academy are committed to your success buckets.
