Bag Methodology and Concept- Build A Response Bag: I

I keep my “Build-A-Response” kit(s) & components divided into two bags - which are usually thrown in my truck.  These carry my 90% solution to a response or training - THESE ARE NOT MY “CARRY ON ME” RESPONSE or Mountain / Canyon Mobility / Training BAGS. These are what I build my “carry on me” bag from.  I pull my gear / components from these bags based on what I’m doing, where I’m doing it, and the context of the situation (fast & light movement, rescue - potential complexity / manpower / organic team assets / environmental pathology, etc).  So there is urban, canyon (dry & wet), mountain…with some swift-water gear sprinkled in....Although most of the gear we use is adaptable and can permeate into full-spectrum vertical utilization.  As far as the bag we carry the components we pull from these bags, we utilize an ass-metric ton of various bags of various sizes and capabilities…more to follow on that one…
 

Episode VIII: Rescue Task Force Updates & REMS with Bryan

We jump into some West Coast RTF topics with FF/Medic/Tactical Medic Bryan Howell - discussing the complexity of this response asset and dive into TTP / SOP development, training, and some the ridiculousness that surrounds this topic nationwide…AND we also dig into the REMS (Rapid Extraction Module Support) programs out on the West Coast (RIP Notorious B.I.G.).  REMS is basically a bad-ass, complex, and evolving program in which 4-man teams become a QRF for injured line wildland firefighters.  The team is required to make access through austere vertical terrain, assess & stabilize the casualty, package and extract, and finally evacuate or handoff for transport to a MTF… anyway,, we discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly.
