Playmobil Fire Rope Rescue Training
« on: October 05, 2018, 21:27:40 »
Hello everyone,

It's been a long time since I've posted anything on here (other than custom trucks) as life seems to never slow down these days.

For me, Playmobil is a stress relief. Today I made some knots and put the guys on rope.

Everything used is Playmobil besides the rope.

ENJOY!

- Ben

The crew from Rescue 3 along with District 1 crews ( Eng 10, 4 and 5 with Medics 4 and 5) participated in this training.

The objective was to span a distance with rope creating a highline and be able to lower a rescuer to the victim.

The systems were anchored to Rescue 3 using anchor straps.
When raising the rescuer and the victim in a stokes baskets, a 4 to 1 haul system was used.

Once the rescuer was raised to the highline, the system was switched to allow for decent.

Wow..  Great work!

I have a hard enough time with the very simple knots in the sets. :-[
