Loading Shelter onto Truck. (Figure 3-1)
To avoid injury to personnel and damage to shelter, only personnel
actually engaged in loading operation should be permitted near
truck, lifting device, and shelter. To eliminate confusion, all in-
structions must come from loading crew supervisor.
The entrance door of the shelter must be at the rear of the truck,
and the front end of the shelter must be placed flush against the
front of the truck body.
