Welcome to -- engineering training -- more Gregory along with pat Nichols. Today's drill we like to discuss. Is technical rescue doesn't always have to be technical. He we have a worker is stuck in a piece of machinery could be farm equipment could be something in -- industrial setting. The bottom line is we get cold we need to get him at the situation. Coming in of course -- safety we have to think about lock out tag that is the machine -- Is it locked out if it tagged out. Now how we -- remove victims armed with machine.
