Cribbing from West Hollywood

One of my favorite things about Facebook is how quick a great idea can be shared and used by others. A great example is a post by Trevor Williams from LACoFD Station 8 in West Hollywood, California.

Cribbing

One of my favorite things about Facebook is how quick a great idea can be shared and used by others. A great example is a post by Trevor Williams from LACoFD Station 8 in West Hollywood, California.  Trevor posted on the Facebook group Truck Floor Training a few pictures of the some cribbing that was placed into service on their rig. Tim Brozo Brozoskie from Rescue Co 1 at Baltimore City Fire Dept. also shared it on the Facebook group Rescue Co.

The type of wood is Douglas Fir – Grade A.  In case you were wondering about the branding, see below:

“I wanted to brand the cribbing in order to orient the wood against its natural desire to crack. All the wood is at it’s strongest when the ? or “LACoFD” are facing up which puts compression on it to hold it together instead of causing it to split.” Trevor Williams

Take note of the oversized carabiner connects 16 pieces of cribbing together so one person can easily grab and go!

Translated from the Facebook post:

This morning at 7.30-time, the message came from the 110-Dispatch: two calves had stepped through the fjøsgulvet and stood in møkkakjelleren on a farm on the ravine.

The Ravine is located in ullensaker municipality and in the area of the upper district fire and rescue. Vaktlaget from the station on jessheim moved out, and our security in nittedal was asked to assist when they have equipment and matters on dyreredning. Nrbr also sent up a unit from lørenskog with usar equipment. Usar stands for urban search and rescue.
