When things go bad fast for an interior working crew, their best bet is a trained RITteam waiting outside to help them. This class will give firefighters an inside look at some of the new, and classic, techniques of rescuing a downed firefighter. It will also be an intense two-day hands-on experience that will hopefully fill the firefighter’s toolbox with ideas that can be used in an emergency. NFPA compliant PPE, SCBA.
