    Default RIT Face Mask modification

    Props to DCFD for their innovative idea...

    I am fairly new to this forum so I am not sure if this information has already been posted. I came across this RIT Mask modification the other day and thought it was a great idea. Some guys at my station argued that it would make the mask non-NFPA compliant. But really, if you are in a situation where this needs to be used, who really cares? When faced with the challenge of getting a mask on downed victim or FF every second makes a difference. Let me know what you all think about it...


    Has anyone adopted this modification?

    looks like it would work pretty good, it's worth trying out speed is key you don't want to screw around to long with a mask in that situation.
