Props to my Ranger buddy for being prepared. I admit I am not prepared to handle something like this when I go climbing. This story just confirmed I need to be more prepared. Good shit Ranger. #Repost @texasrgr (@get_repost)
PSA: Invest in a fully stocked medkit/lifesaving medical training if you are not proficient. I found myself running through #RFR and #TCCC steps yesterday while #RockClimbing . I applied a dressing to this women's head to stop massive hemorrhaging after she took a 40' fall onto sharp rocks. She apparently free fell while rappelling due to some issues with equipment or technique, not sure on those details. What I am sure of is the fact that she had a 8" laceration from the middle of her forehead to the top of her head. Her skull appeared fractured with massive hemorrhaging and she lost about 7 teeth, including molars. There were several groups of climbers and the sole medkit on site was ideal for smaller injuries, but nothing of this magnitude. A guy literally handed me a BandAid. I did what I could for this young woman, however the group she was with opted to not move her until ems arrived. My primary concern was her bleeding. The others were concerned with her spine and did not want to move her without a backboard, makes sense. Unfortunately it was almost 2 hrs from the time she sustained her injuries before she left the mountain in an ambulance due to waiting for a backboard and route planning issues. If we had carried her up a draw approx. 100' they could have dropped a basket from a helo and expedited the movement, IMO. Nothing but respect to all involved, but what I witnessed was nothing short of unpreparedness and stalling on a course of action. It seems as if mountain rescue ops will most likely be conducted on a more serious level at this location in the near future. This is the fourth major incident in the last two years in which I had to use various skills within my medical training on people who sustained traumatic injuries in my vicinity. I have carried a fully stocked, organized, and labeled medkit prior to all of these events. @northamericanrescue #beprepared#aar
When your fancy Variable Speed Drive Air Compressor has a leak in the line to the tank and goes down over the weekend, you’re glad you kept the old compressor hooked up as a back up. Came in tonight, closed off one, opened up the other and we are back up and running. Doesn’t matter what business you’re in, we all face the same kind of challenges. #beprepared#aircompressor#gettingitdone
