Step chocks are used for stabilizing vehicles and other unsteady objects, often in conjunction with wedges. They are carried on Rescue-1, Rescue-3 and the Special Operations Support Unit.
In Rescue-1 the step chocks are stored on the right hand floor.
In Rescue-3 the step chocks are stored next to the generator.
In the Special Operations Support Unit step chocks and crib blocks are next to the Becker Sling box.
For more information regarding the use of step chocks and related accessories, please visit the Technical Sheet, Overturned Vehicle Stabilization.
