Pulling things

During incidents, the CFS utilise winches to aid in recovery of items, to stabilize a situation or simply to pull things around. These winches may be mounted on an appliance and controlled via a remote controller, or they can be manually operated porable units which can be carried to the incident and set up for operation.
