    the Fishers Fire Department. A systems based approach to moving the down firefighter in a risk situation is important as it allows us as a writ team to be efficient and save energy. Once we have located and addressed the down fire fighter. We have to move them to a point of egress. This video will show you both the two shoulder drag and the narrow profile drag. To move the downed firefighter to a point of egress. As the officer, it is my job to lead my RIT team to the point of egress. The search firefighter then takes control of the movement of the downed firefighter , and the air nav position becomes his subordinate. We're gonna start with the two shoulder drag method for moving the downed firefighter . This method is great for wide open spaces, as it allows us to be very fast and efficient. We start the move by addressing the firefighter's shoulder straps. The search firefighter in the air nab position have to loosen the shoulder strap, tighten it. And then hand the excess back to their drag
    that the airnav position gets in-between the legs, he straddles the downed firefighter's low side leg, and he gets in an aggressive stance, so that he drives on the pelvis, and doesn't drive the leg
    Ready? Ready. Go. We've reviewed today assistance-based approach, or moving the downed firefighter utilizing the two-shoulder drag, the narrow-profile. And the execution terminology to make these moves happen. Thank you for watching Fire Engineering's Training
