Ooooopaaaaloooopaa, congratulations on your victory tonight.



This post is just to recap on the game and skills taught tonight. Each team was given the same items:

•3 shirts
•2 socks
•1 towel
•1 pair of shorts
•1 sleeping bag

Jeremy of the Ooooopaaaaloooopaa patrol was then wrapped--the shirts covered his upper torso to provide warmth. The towel was placed under his head to retain heat while also elevating his head (which forces blood via gravity to flow to the chest). The shorts and socks attempted to cover his lower body but unfortunately due to rain, one sock was thoroughly wet. Concluding this placement of clothing, Jeremy of the Ooooopaaaaloooopaa patrol was encased in the sleeping bag.



To move the victim (for the game), a simple fire rescue drag was used.

In real life, the scouts would make something like this to escort the victim out.

--Patrick
