    Default Rescue harness?

    I was recently at the NE fire chiefs show and there was a booth on how to make a 2 or 3 point harness out of a piece of 1 inch tubular webbing and was wondering if anyone has the instructions on how to make this or does anyone know themselves? Thanks.

    Was it Hawills Ltd. who had the booth?
    This is their website...

    You can do that hasty harness or you can make it come up and include the shoulders so that its a class 3 harness, you tie it behind the neck then you have your point to attach the biner too.

    I took five sections of webbing each 6 feet long, 2 lengths blue, two red and one yellow and made interconnecting loops.

    It can be used as a class three harness, and can be used to drag someone out of a building.

    It can be deployed in about 15 seconds and can take minutes off of dragging someone out.

    Sounds like an unrated Sling-Link to me.
