    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.
