Sheet Pull | V.E.S. (Ventilate, Enter and Search) Scenarios

The Sheet Pull allows firefighters to check if anybody is on the bed while searching a bedroom in low visibility conditions. If the sheet comes off easily, there is a good chance that there is nobody on the bed.

‘I find my fitted sheet the one that’s under everybody. (Tries pulling) It doesn’t want to move. If he is not there, it just pulls off the bed. So it gives me two seconds of, “oh there’s a good chance somebody’s on this bed.’
