           MAB Loading Order
   Load patients from front of bus to rear
   Load least injured patients first
   Heaviest patients in the bottom positions
   Lightest patients should be in the top
    positions
   Potential critical patients or most severely
    injured patients should be loaded in the
    middle positions
   Patients are placed on the bus litter
    OUTSIDE the bus and litter is then placed
    on a standard ambulance cot for entry
    onto the bus.

   The ambulance cot should be rolled up the
    ramp in the lowest maneuverable position
    with the patient’s head toward the front of
    the bus.

   This allows for the most stable position
    and less chance for the attendant to strike
    their head on the door frame.
For Upper Positions:
1 - Align the cot next to a litter bay
     Raise the cot to highest position
     Extend empty litter slide brackets
2 - While leaving the foot of the litter on the
ambulance stretcher, hook the head of the
litter into the bracket
3 – The provider at the feet then holds the
foot end of the litter while the attendant at
the head pulls the cot out from under the
litter, toward the front of the bus (see note)
4 – The provider at the head end squats below
  the litter, at the level of the patients thighs,
  with his back straight, using your legs, lifts
  the litter to the level of the bracket
6 – The provider at the feet guides the litter
  into the bracket
5 – The brackets are then slid into the rack
  and locked in place with the pin
Note: In the front bays, you should reverse
 the procedure and put the foot end in the
 bracket first and move the stretcher towards
 the rear of the bus and then place the front
 end in the bracket
For the Middle Position
1 - Align the cot next to a litter bay
       Raise the cot to highest position
       Extend empty litter slide brackets
  2 - While leaving the foot of the litter on the
  ambulance stretcher, hook the head of the
  litter into the bracket
  3 – The provider at the feet then holds the
  foot end of the litter while the attendant at
  the head pulls the cot out from under the
  litter, toward the front of the bus (see note)
4 – Together, lift the foot end of the litter into
  the bracket
5 – The brackets are then slid into the rack and
  locked in place
