The Nutmeg Carry

rsz sandy hook rit stair carry 4The Nutmeg Carry is an alernative technique to remove a downed firefighter from a below grade area such as a basement or cellar. The traditional 2 firefighter removal tactic is good, but it exposes the upright firefighters to high heat conditions, and is extremaly time consuming due to the numerous resets. The Nutmeg Carry places the downed member on the rescuers back to be removed up from the below grade area. Like any new technique it requires some practice and may need to be tweaked to fit your department needs but when done correctly it will speed up your removal efforts.
