    Talking Rit Packs

    FFJay,
    Our department carries two complete sets of "RIT" equipment. The following are items that we have found useful:

    A complete air pack with and extra face piece
    Duct tape (to repair small cracks in the face shield itself)
    2 30' sections of high strength webbing with caribeaners (for moving a downed firefighter)
    A RIT team checklist, that has a dry erase board for making a sketch of the structure, ladder placement and hazard reminders, etc. It also has a list of equipment that is recommended to have staged on the RIT tarp, separated from everyone elses equipment.
    RIT team helmet shields (like most accountability shields with velcro on one side) for our people to attach to their helmet.

    Hope this helps.
