RIT Team Operations: A Top- Down Approach

This program was created based on multiple, real- life incidents that identified the need for RIT teams to be better prepared for activation with a particular focus on potential rescues from elevated areas. This class will discuss various ways to approach non- routine training for RIT Team operations. Topics include performing effective scene size- ups, techniques for performing rescues from a roof top or elevated area, understanding the decision-making process, and roles of the company officer and incident commander during a mayday. We will identify and evaluate actual mayday situations that may and did go unnoticed and how to take a realistic approach to recognizing future mayday situations. We will also review real life incidents and discuss how a domino effect of fireground issues often occurs leading up to the mayday.
