RIT manual and Instructor’s CD-ROM Package

* Rapid Intervention Teams Manual – was written by firefighters who have been implementing and teaching these concepts since 1995. The authors have worked in rural and urban environments and provide cost-effective solutions for your department.

Rapid Intervention Teams will:

* Help guide you through the regulations and standards that apply to rapid intervention

* Give you options for implementation and dispatch of rapid intervention units

* Provide equipment lists for rapid intervention work, and show how work can be performed using existing equipment and training

* Show a two-team concept that can provide the resources needed to handle the majority of rescue situations

* Rapid Intervention Teams Instructor’s CD-ROM –  designed to prepare firefighters for operations-level RIT duties. It combines both awareness- and operations-level training for participants who have minimal experience in RIT work. It can be adapted to be utilized for students with various levels of RIT experience. The information is designed to be presented in a 16- to 20-hour format, and it includes slides in a PowerPoint® format incorporating video clips in 12 lessons that can be customized by instructors to take into account local situations.

The information also provides several suggested variations for scheduling the program, working around the availability of hands-on training venues. Departments with ready access to hands-on facilities can integrate hands-on with classroom training, while those that don’t can combine all of their hands-on training in a single 8-hour period.
