## You Will Never Look at Small Gear Small Team Rescue the Same Again

I am pretty excited about the future of our community.  Folks are talking more about what is important and designers, builders, techies, manufacturers, and instructors are all listening to each other… for the most part. 🙂 We are surrounded by amazing people. I have long desired to have a playground to build and adventure into things […]

## Concepts in Thought: The Direction is Up and Off!

You know how excruciatingly hard it is to negotiate any sort of edge without some sort of “blood bath”.   You have given your life and soul to a purpose… to save lives and mitigate the challenges that would put you in the same sort of predicament your patient is in.  An “edge” is going from

## Mechanical Advantage- Calculation of MA with the T Method in a simple system

Hey all This is a quick trip through the classroom with Rich Delaney.  I had a few questions this week about properly determining any given mechanical advantage ratio.  We have some many great examples, so I pulled this video from the Rigging Lab Academy. course files.  Welcome to the T Method. The T-System for calculating

## Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast: A Common Sense Approach to Your Next Rope Rescue

Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast: A Common Sense Approach to Your Next Rope Rescue “Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast”. This is an old adage that was passed on to me in my first dealings with the fire service. At first it seemed like some sort of cliché or one of many one

## 5 Cords… What Are They Worth?

So on this wonderfully cold day in February, I sit and ponder the future. The normal pondering of mine look something like this: Futuristic Strategic Input Activation Maximizing

## Advanced Rigging Physics: Equipment (Trailer with Richard Delaney)

This course takes a detailed look at the equipment used by the roping technician. It applies the language and understanding of the first course (Advanced Rigging Physics – Physics for Roping Technicians 1: Vectors & Mechanical Advantage) to connectors, cordage, knots and the way forces are absorbed during falls. Finally, there is a discussion about

## Advanced Rigging Physics: Vectors & Mechanical Advantage (Trailer)-Richard Delaney

This course covers the basic physics that apply to roping systems. This course should enable technicians to develop a deeper understanding and a sound approach to problem-solving. Considering force and tension as vectors and finding creative ways to apply these in the field makes it so much easier to define resultants and calculate mechanical advantage

## Vision, Passion and Purpose Will Make You A Transformational Rigger

In our industry, what moves us are pulleys and mechanical advantage. But in our being, what moves us is much deeper. What moves me is the hope of releasing vision, passion and purpose in others and one platform for this is Rigging Lab Academy and the network of people that surrounds me. So my question
