7-10. SACK AND POLE LITTER
An improvised litter can be made using two tent poles or similar rigid objects and
two empty heavy fabric sacks, such as potato sacks. A pole and sack improvised litter
is shown in figure 7-10.
a. Cut holes in the two corners of the closed end of each sack.
b. Place the sacks lengthwise so the open ends of the sacks are facing each
c. Slide the poles or limbs through the holes.
d. Overlap the open ends of the sacks about three inches to provide extra
strength in the middle of the litter.
