    Ranger Roll

    This came up on my YouTube feed, and I thought I would post it here. Some of you may recognize the guy giving the demonstration. Wil Willis was in the Rangers for four years, and the Air Force Para-rescue for 10. He has also been on a few television series for The Military and History Channels.

    There are a ton of safer and more efficient ways to move a casualty.

    No malice intended, but this can easily cause further harm.

    I’ve seen this video, but I have never once been instructed in this technique in my time in the Ranger Regiment, JMAU, other DoD organizations, or as a “tactical” paramedic.

    Perhaps it has applications beyond my appreciation.

    Totally agree, not only do you stand injuring the casualty you risk hurting yourself, I'd imagine the last thing you'd want in a gunfight is a slipped disc lol.

    We used to do this in Judo class as a next level up from basic fireman carry as part of our warmups, with the goal being able to get people of higher weight onto your shoulders that you could never otherwise pick up.

    And now that I think about it, we did encounter a few minor injuries both to people being picked up (usually when it failed) and those attempting to lift really heavy people. I can still "feel" the fatigue associated with the exercise which was basically "Ok pick up your buddy, walk to the edge of the room, tag the wall and walk to the opposite wall and do the same" which went on for almost 5 minutes because you never got paired with somebody your own weight or lighter.

    I'd be interested in seeing those methods if you have links.

    A very subtle understatement. We would never, ever, ever do this. This is Hollywood.

    I don't have video links off the top of my head, sorry man. I usually demonstrate various methods of expedient and deliberate extraction/casualty carries in our classes.

    Ok, thanks. It's one area I really don't have any training in, but I'd be interesting in picking up some pointers. A couple of our shooting clubs practiced basic first aid for generic gun shot wounds, but I probably can't stress the word "basic" enough.

    I'll take a look, thanks.
