I -- -- -- -- well while the training. This segment we're gonna do that option -- here we have a large concrete drainage under. Construction worker has got a -- and on to the cylinder. Under -- several -- around and around so it inherently going to be on stable. The challenge we're gonna -- in lifting us to keep this stable would roll one direction the other. The first thing we need to -- know is Begin stabilization. And the fire fighters in a command and play a wedge on Lavelle how. That we don't stabilization. The next thing we do is we're gonna get our -- job. In this scenario that oxygen and it act as our main body stabilization. -- -- -- -- -- We've got to try to off set them on the plight. We don't want the depth chart of bought together -- -- -- Gay are stabilization. So we want to take a market share that they're all out on -- -- -- the pipe. Okay because this fight -- -- to roll one direction the other. We're gonna annualized six foot hoped to keep the fire fighters out of the potential. -- -- is Biden could -- -- now stabilized wearing it down and our bags. For this scenario I've chosen to use -- fifteenth on back. Mainly because -- the shape the rectangular shape is an alarming at that in and it's gonna give me more area. I want to try to -- the bags. Under the Biden -- close to the victim as possible. And as we can say we're working with an -- -- what we want to try to do is get that back up on an -- -- it context on the flight. In order to do that would -- -- like four blocks. The -- up. Slide the -- yeah. That back on securely. Ugly with the other side of the five. In order to prevent that -- from kicking out. We inflate this bag is going to be a tremendous downward pressure. That downward pressure is likely to -- that blocked out in order to prevent that. -- -- I don't wanna ensure that both sides are uniformly the clock on the back good. Our idea looks to be -- -- hidden. We're -- to our -- this Biden as we -- the two firefighters now I've got news exclude book. And continually put -- -- as we -- left. I would about critical -- the left. What we've -- our controllers we employed usable life that we can get even -- them both back in addition to that. We've added in my -- off a lot. One bag -- contact earlier than the other -- -- back begins to play a little more we can shut up -- down and inflate the other back to even it out. We really want even controlled here because -- -- natural route it looked like we don't want to send a spike in motion. We employ to -- in line at all on -- controller. We're all set we're -- despite. -- -- -- Stop. -- -- Stock. Block off screen. -- -- -- -- I -- -- -- we've got -- desired -- that we could get to that struck worker out. What we wanna do now capture -- or we do the education the week down on the air bags that shot carry load. Come down on the back. The bags -- real quiet. We can move demo. -- We've been. And Begin extricating the station. Again we want to focus on -- final mobilization. We're gonna use a long border -- try to get it under his trunk. -- get him out from underneath this bike. As we can it is very coordinated evolution we've really got to take our time insulating the bags that we prevent that movement of the -- rolling. Stabilization -- -- -- here okay snapshots of big wedges -- we want to prevent the older one way or the other. We only had left about three or four inches which is very easy -- -- team. -- Colby Bockwoldt well thank -- things.
