Rapid Intervention Teams
Rapid Intervention is a concept that is overcomplicated by many. The mission is quite clear, locate the downed firefighter, package them and GET THEM OUT! Time is of the essence and a cache of tools will not always be available. Our Rapid Intervention Program teaches skills requiring "bare bones equipment". In other words, using the tools you will most likely have in your hand when the situation goes down. Learn from Instructors that have been involved in actual Firefighter Removals and have helped to establish successful R.I.T. Programs which techniques can help expedite the removal of a firefighter in need of assistance. This class will cover various drags, carries, high point rescue, and airway management of a downed firefighter.
