How to make an emergency stretcher

Welcome to Simple Survival!

Making a stretcher

This illustration gives you an idea of how to make a stretcher in an emergency. You can use a blanket as shown at the top. Position two strong poles about 1/3 of the way from the sides, the fold the left side over, and finally the right side. Make sure the persons body weight keeps on the blanket, or it could come apart.

Two shirts, or even pants, can be used as shown at the bottom. Once again you need two strong poles to carry the victim with.

Or, as shown on the right, you can use rope to transport an injured person. Keep in mind, the ropes method is the least comfortable for the victim and you might had to cusion it for them.
