 A Few Tips:
 

Winches can be deadly if not used correctly

Know recovery equipment capabilities and limitations. Winches have tremendous power, and, if not properly secured to the disabled vehicle, winches can rip off tow lugs, bumpers, and other attachments that often become projectiles, injuring personnel and/or damaging equipment.

 

Control Bleeding

In a survival situation, you must control serious bleeding immediately because replacement fluids normally are not available and the victim can die within a matter of minutes
