This is the safest way to do rescue cribbing and reduces the likely hood of injury to the cribbing team while providing the very result for the victim. Thanks to the Burbank CA CERT program for providing the video.
Rescue Cribbing – Safety First
Remember as CERT members we are not to enter buildings that are unsafe or pose a threat to us. Only enter structures you have been instructed to enter after they have been cleared by emergency personnel
Our West Orange County CERT program teaches and reviews skills like this during our bi-monthly training sessions (complete with a great pot-luck and fellowship), our periodic training Saturdays, and our CERT Academy courses. If you would like to find out more about our CERT program and how it can help you keep your family safe in a disaster, please contact us here. If you are not in our area, we will try to connect you to your local CERT program. The more people who are trained, the better prepared our country is – and that is our intent. #CERTforAll
