I don't know if this applies to this forum but I figure i would try to gain some insight if anyone out there has dealt with the topic. I am a FT FF and member of a tech rescue team. My dept. recently had to remove a morbidly obese pt. from a house due to a medical situation. We estimated him at 800+ lbs, but found out he was over 1000 lbs. later. It took 3 hours but we did eventually extricate and transport the pt. with no injuries to rescuers or the patient but it could have been better. The dept is now trying to compile a "pre-plan" for future responses, and I was hoping some of you might have some ideas that did or didn't work in your own experiences. Thanks in advance!
