Controling a scene


Recommended Posts

While not a Tow Truck, this does emphasize the need for scene control.



Persons near the scene should always be cleared prior to moving forward with any recovery.

never ever be in the line of fire if you can help it .


years ago i was at a 4x4 play day event a friends truck got stuck in a swamp hole . they had a d-4 size dower there and hooked up a strap to it . the strap popped and i yelled out " and this is why chains are a dead mans tool anymore " the strap puffed up / popped and dropped . but no one was in the dead zone of the strap . now if that was a chain the links would have been bullets flying all over the place .


i also wont pull on a load if people are walking around with no respect to the work area rules and safety rules for the area .

I find it ironic that the only person wearing a helmet was the only person who got clocked by flinging debris.     R.


Here's another video link where chain was said to recoil through the Jeep's windshield.
