In this segment, two rescuers ferry across the river prepped and ready to receive the line shot from the Rescue Max. Rescuer enters the water with the far bank hauling the near band (river right) giving slack.

Anchors are established on both sides of the river (2 points) with the third assist (throw bag) to complete the crossing of the rescuer in the boat. The victim is brought into the boat and slack is given in opposite order with river right now hauling.

In the early stages of the crossing, the river flow is used to “ferry” the boat into position for an easier haul “up river”.

 

Anchors are rigged with Petzl Rescue Pulley

Progress capture on both sides using a Petzl Rescucender and prusik extensions.
