There. -- port the by column now welcome the training minutes today segment we're gonna discuss -- five point lips. A -- -- point lift distributes the load to two or more points along the object to be lifted. Went on properly we double lot of lifting capacity and we provide for a controlled -- lift. Prior to performing this multi point lift we want to do with full 360 walk around the dumpster looking for any unknown hazards. We want to look inside the dumpster to check on the load to try to determine how heavy this -- is going to be. We also want to see if there any objects in the dumpster that might shift their role as we perform the list thus causing -- on balance lift. On the opposite side of the dumpster we want to stabilize with -- grooming to prevent any lateral movement and also to prevent that side of the dumpster from the pressing which could potentially further injure -- patient. In this scenario we see our victim is completely and into the mid span the -- we opt to use a multi point -- -- We could use a single point lift but we have to move while it -- in order to extricate the patient and in the event that this -- who was on evenly loaded. Our -- could -- come on balanced. We've positioned our bags on the extreme outside -- this man just in Florida dumpsters rollers. We've built up with tripping and use the appropriate stacked bags we want to build our lift right up to the underside of the rail of the dumpster. What we've done here is placed the plywood pat on top of the -- back. Because the profiler -- is rather thin. Our service area would just a bag is going to be somewhat limited that could detract from my -- by placing a pat on top of the back we distribute that surface area. He get it. Much better lift. It and position our capture stack to the inside it respectively stacks as the dumpsters lifted. We will stabilize the load with the wages. Will capture -- prior -- next vacation. In this scenario we've opted to use the Y. The -- will provide very controlled and bounced left we must ensure that when using the why we run the hoses to the course battening bags in the stack. But all the words this why here as the black hoses running to both the bottom bags this why here as the green hoses running to the top banks. We must be careful not to confuse these -- As if to run -- close to a bottom bag this black close to a top bag that will result in an unbalanced. By building up with our -- stack. To the underside of the dumpster frame -- We avoid losing any capacity -- -- the back this is gonna be an extremely heavy loads we want to maximize the -- lifting capacity. By placing the plywood on top of the back we're gonna distribute the lifting force evenly. We're gonna catch the dumpster rail and we should get reaction as soon as we begin to inflate the backs. Off. -- as we can see. As soon as the bags begin to -- late there's a reaction the dumpsters being lifted because our lifting force is being distributed along the plywood -- As we lift the firefighters are stabilizing the load with the wedges. -- -- Once again we -- stacked bags we alternate the lifting operation. Between the top in the bottom back. Other leveraged achieved -- required -- before -- education. We want to capture to load before we commit rescue personnel under the dumpster. -- -- -- As we -- airbags are options facts are gonna -- the low. Pulled back. It's important to keep the bags in contact with the load slightly. They'll provide added stability in in the event that we do have to raise the load further thirty in place to do sell. We now get our next -- Remember if this were a lot of victim. We want to take proper cease fire mobilization. Gordon College this nation and allow the -- geez it's one lifesaving skills. I'm all -- but -- now thank you for watching training its.
