"DOWNED PERSON RESCUE

DOWNED PERSON RESCUE’S ARE TRICKY AND REQUIRE A LOT OF TRAINING.

30 - 45 SECONDS IS ALL THE LONGER IT SHOULD TAKE FROM THE TIME OF THE STOP AND DISMOUNT TO RETRIEVAL AND REMOUNTING.IN THE CASE OF A HOT EXTRACTION, WHICH IS WHAT SHOULD BE TRAINED AT ALL TIMES, HASTY DISMOUNTING IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE. TO AVOID MISHAPS AND COLLISIONS, THE TEAM SHOULD ONLY DISMOUNT THE MINIMUM NUMBER OF OFFICERS TO HANDLE THE DOWNED PERSON AND COVER SECURITY NEEDS.

THE DRIVER OR FRONT PASSENGER DEPENDING ON THE SIDE THE DOWNED PERSON IS ON, SHOULD POSITION THE VEHICLE AS CLOSE TO THE DOWNED PERSON AS POSSIBLE, LINING UP THE GUN PORT OF THAT DOOR WITH THE CENTER MASS OF THE DOWNED PERSON. GENERALLY THE FIRST AND SECOND OFFICER OUT THE BACK SHOULD TAKE UP SECURITY POSITIONS.THE FIRST OFFICER AT THE REAR OF THE TRUCK AT A SUITABLE COVER POSITION CLEAR OF THE VEHICLES ENTRANCE. THE SECOND OFFICER TOWARD THE FRONT FOLLOWED BY THE PICK UP TEAM. THE TEAM ON THE GROUND THEN REMOUNT’S IN REVERSE WITH THE LAST OFFICER IN USING THE VOICE COMMAND CLEAR, CLEAR.NOTE: AS THE GROUND TEAM REMOUNTS, THE LAST OFFICER IN SHOULD CLOSE THE DOORS. YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHICH DIRECTION THE DRIVER MAY GO TO LEAVE AND THE INSIDE OF THE VEHICLE MAY BE EXPOSED TO FIRE."
