U.S. Marines and Sailors with Chemical Biological Incident Response Force (CBIRF) conduct sling load training aboard Naval Support Facility Indian Head Annex Stump neck, Md., on Mar 3, 2021.

Sling load training is practiced to give CBIRF personnel the experience in order for small package teams to deploy via UH-60 Blackhawks in the event that CBIRF is called to respond and vehicle accessibility is limited.

Although the process sounds simple, there are potential risks if the sling isn’t put together properly, so it is important that every step in the process is performed correctly.
