Triple R Method

One tool in the rescue discipline that is important to store properly, ready for fast effective deployment is the ratchet strap.  One method that satisfies both requirements is the Triple R Method.  I first ran across this technique on Iraki West’s Heavy Rescue Germany page.  I included his video and also located a video in English below.

Here are a few pictures from the Heavy Rescue Germany that show the Triple R method in several different stages of storing the straps.  The Heavy Rescue Germany site is written in German, if that is not your first language, the “Translate” button should pop up and you can quickly translate the entire website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s another method of storing ratchet straps from VentEnterSearch.com.
