An improvised litter can be made using only a blanket or other material. The
blanket is laid on the ground and two opposite edges of the blanket are rolled toward
the middle (figure 9-6). When the casualty is placed on the blanket, the rolled edges of
the blanket are used as grips. Four or more litter bearers should be used when
transporting a casualty using the blanket litter (figure 9-7).
