When a team has a mission, they always make sure to have an accurate illustration of the problem that needs to be solved. They draw out several plans before deciding on the final plan. They then explain to each other what their responsibilities will be during the mission. This helps them remember all team members roles and responsibilities.
On missions, teams will use code words like “Visual” in order to make sure that everyone knows that they have the good guys in sight. This is a way to ensure very clear communication between the different team members.
When a team is on a parachute mission, the radio operator will call over the radio and say “Jumpers Away” to let everyone know that jumpers have left the airplane. The Jumpers will fall and then pull their cords in order to open their parachutes and land safely in the water or on land.
When a jumper enters the water with a mask and snorkel they usually have cool gear strapped to their waist with a belt. The Right hand holds the mask and snorkel in place so that they don’t lose them while the left hand holds the belt in place. This allows the team to immediately accomplish the mission without having to adjust their gear.
