Welcome to the 8 Point Search For Rescue Rigging Anchors

Written By: Lance Piatt

Search and Rescue (SAR) members are a crossbred group of heroes that often spend an ungodly amount of time trying fix what others have broken; they are either lost, hurt and damaged, trapped or stuck in places and on things that sometimes defy logic. They do it mostly out of honoring others before themselves or simply out of duty. Either way, these folks are studs.

As SAR members, your time is not always your own. You have much to learn in a very small space of time. Your duties may include performing ground, aerial, or water-based search and rescue operations. Supervise between one to six search and rescue personnel. May perform technical rope rescue, hasty searches, grid searching for evidence or clues, aerial searches, helicopter short haul, etc.

We’re excited to bring you a taste of these elements that you, as a SAR member, routinely work with. It’s our hope this mini-course breathes some freshness into your training life while saving you time and energy.

Remember, industry has its own set of hidden relics that can haunt a rigging technician just as much as anyone or anywhere else.

General Thoughts… 8 Minimal Considerations for anchor unveiling.

  1. The anchor system needs to have a central point where the vector is in line with the main system.
  2. Distribute the force as evenly across anchor points as possible.
  3. Shoot for a 20kN minimal strength rating.
  4. Always keep the loading of any carabiner in line with the spine or major axis.
  5. Minimize hazardous edges or material within the anchor field.
  6. Hot temps can really heat up metal… be aware of this.
  7. Keep the gear and materials away from chemical and petroleum products
  8. Bomber anchor can best be found within a multipoint set up.  Single point could do this as well, but if in doubt, multiply.

Peace on your days…

Lance
