Assume responsibility for your own evacuation when absolutely necessary. Discover unusual techniques for evacuating litter victims. Use common camping equipment to improvise carrying devices. Make litters from pack frames, webbing poles or blankets. Carry litters properly. Pass litter cases over obstacles. Instruct others and understand instruction better with the help of this book.
