Rescue Pickets, Picket Anchor Systems

Did you know that Hogan Tent Stakes supplies many search and rescue crews with tent stakes that are used as rescue pickets? A picket is any post, stake, or peg that is used in a fence or barrier, to fasten down a tent or other temporary structure, to anchor rescue equipment, or even be used directly to anchor or stabilize objects during rescue operations.

Click to view these images of double head tent stakes in use as rescue pickets. Our 1″ x 42” or 1″ x 48″ double head tent stakes make very good pickets.

To see how the a picket anchor system might be useful tools for rescue, check out the video below.  Tony Neely with Peoria Fire goes over setup of a 1-1-1 picket anchor system with 1 inch webbing tie backs.

In addition to using tent stakes to make a picket anchor system, our tent stakes have been used to anchor TeleCrib® struts and the Shark™ Collapsible Step Chock from Rescue42.
