English term or phrase: fireman's lift
I looked everywhere for the French equivalent of "fireman's lift" or "fireman's carry".

In wrestling, they tend to use many English terms and vice versa. I'm looking for the term used by the "pompiers" themselves...there must be one! I doubt the terms "enfourchement" or "transport à l'épaule" are the normal ones for this action.

levée du pompier
Explanation:
I'd use "levée du pompier" to translate the term (fireman's lift) and "porter sur une épaule" to describe the action.
