7-11. BLANKET LITTER
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 7-11). When the casualty is placed on the blanket, the rolled edges of
the blanket are used as grips (figure 7-12). Four or more litter bearers should be used
when transporting a casualty using the blanket litter.
