As far as answering your question, "don't add to the problem". Communication should also be stressed.
We just got all new Morning Pride, with the internal harness. It works great when performing RIT tactics. With a large beaner, you can attach it to the upper straps of the SCBA/bracket of unit, and drag the downed firefighter(making sure the waste straps are connected between legs).
