Backboards are great for getting the ambulance out of the sand that is up to the rear bumper when you are at the beach, so I hear.  Otherwise they aren't too useful.

i hear that phone call to the supervisor isn't very fun though.

You know I worked for a 911 service on the beach and they didn't carry backboards...I wonder if this is why. It only takes one crew getting caught using backboards to get unstuck to ruin the beach for the rest of us. Lol

There was video floating around a few years back of a crew in Massachusetts if I recall correctly using one as a sled towed behind the ambulance during a snow storm.  I just did a quick search and couldn't find it.  I don't think it ended well for anyone involved.  One of the early lessons of "not everything needs to wind up on the internet".
