This isn't a troll post, and yes, it's OT. But, this is a compliment to
this NG, because out of all the NG's I had subscribed to, this is one of the
few I haven't unsubscribed. It's because this NG is filled with everyday
people, with knowledge of the real world. Besides that, I don't know what
other NG I would ask, and I've searched Google, but can't find my answer.
Here's the deal. I've been trying to get on with DOT for the past year (7
applications for different positions). I've finally got something back from
them, to take a physical ability test (PAT). One of the events requires the
candidate to DRAG an adult size rescue dummy for twenty-four feet. Any part
of the rescue dummy's body may be used for the drag. However, the rescue
dummy is NOT to be picked up, hoisted over candidates' shoulders, or
carried. Also, candidates are NOT permitted to walk backwards to complete
the drag. This is a timed completion event and to pass candidates are
required to complete the drag in eleven (11) seconds, dragging the dummy
completely past the "end" cone. The rescue dummy weighs approx. 100 lbs.
So, how would you drag the body?
