Before our technical rescue teams move accident victims, they first identify any conditions that may pose further threats over the course of the extraction, to ensure he or she will be extracted without sustaining further injury. Upon initial contact, a rescuer will identify:
If the patient is conscious or responsive
Is there any spinal cord injury, to determine if extraction can be done quickly.
Is the rescuer about to extract the patient with or without rescue equipment support
Is the patient stable for extraction
When it comes to high angle rescue service, it’s critical to treat every individual with care. Precision is key, which is why we are trained to evaluate the condition of the injured victim, as well as the site location, to protect the safety of everyone involved.
