    this episode we're going to be going over how to get a firefighter up the stairs with the two man method. As in any of the methods, we advocate that the firefighter be packaged prior to lifting up the stairs. In that case, we won't strip our firefighter of his SEBA and be able to maintain a strong hold of his pack. In this method, in order for the bottom firefighter to get into position The firefighter needs to be sat up. And brought to the base of the stairs. In order for him to get in the position that we need him to be, this firefighter needs to get up to about the second stair. So this is done by just manually lifting him up to that second
    word command and in this case it's going to be the top firefighter saying those commands cuz his face is buried down low And we're gonna watch them go up these stairs one stair at
    many firefighters to accomplish this lift. It also works with a larger firefighter going up that one step at a time In the next video we're gonna show a little more efficient way but it

    of fire engineering training minutes. In this episode, we're gonna be discussing firefighter drags. Before we do our dragging, the firefighter's going to be packaged, but let's let common sense prevail. If the firefighter is really close to an opening and there's no lengthy drags. Lifts to be done. The firefighter can be assessed and drug out of the building without being packaged. There has been successful rescues in the past that way. However, if the firefighter is deeper into a building and a lengthy rescue needs to be taken place where a long drag. Up and out of a window, up stairs, some sort of lift. It is imperative that we package out downed firefighter so the firefighter doesn't get stripped of his or her gear. In this first method we're going to be discussing the push-pull. It's a very common drag and it works well with two rescuers. They stay in a thin line that goes through narrow hallways, or door thresholds very easily. As for our bottom firefighter , when he lifts the leg, it's important that he gets really low to drive and push the firefighter forward. And, does not get up to the knee, or ankle where they fold the firefighter , pushing them into the ground. As for the top firefighter , Graft is going to go over some ways to make our drag most efficient. We don't give much thought to how we
    first drag, we're gonna show you now how to turn our downed firefighter . We might not always have. Six foot or so of linear space to turn our firefighter in a kitchen or in a living room with all of the obstructions there. Plus it's a lot of friction. So by turning our firefighter like this We decreased the surface area and decreased the friction. It's like a break dancing **** spin is what we're doing.
    talk about is a feet first drag. There are times when a firefighter can be presented feet first. They can be in a small bathroom or small confined space. And before we even attempt to
