2015 CERT Rodeo Cribbing Station

Community Emergency Response Team members work together to rescue a "survivor" mannequin from underneath a concrete block by using wooden planks and inserting them underneath the block in order to lift it. Members are surrounding the block on three sides in order to create leverage, while wearing their signature yellow vests and green hard hats for safety.

Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) are given fifteen minutes to rescue a victim trapped underneath a concrete block at the CERT Rodeo held in Humble, Texas on February 7, 2015. While completing the task, they are challenged to use the cribbing skills they gained during their CERT training.
