    Default RIT Equipment list

    A little off subject, but my department is getting a block of funding that must be used toward RIT Equipment. I have looked at the NFPA site, and at several other sites and cannot find a list of suggested equipment. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is some basic equipment that you should have:

    TIC
    Rit Pack
    Search Rope
    Tethers
    Wire Cutters

    I cannot remember all that we have, but it fills a stokes basket.
    I would add:
    Irons (dedicated to RIT only)
    TNT
    Hammer (22 oz)
    Elec Chain Saw or Cordless Saws All
    Life Safety Rope
    Sling Link

    Derrick--only got a minute or i'd look deeper...but it think that there are a few lists posted in the Rapid Intervention forum here at Firehouse. Seems like we found a few 2 or 3 years ago that we used as a basis for filling our Stokes basket for RIT.

    Have you tried the new NFPA 1407? It has some recommendations but it leaves it up to the local AHJ. For those that are reading this will surely correct me if I'm wrong.

    Appreciate the info, please keep it coming. We have the RIT bag, with connections for the scba, rope, and each person has a personal rope kit as well. TIC, dedicated as well, with a k-12, and an irons kit. I will look at the 1407 standard as well. Thanks

    NFPA 1407 has got some good info, but look at the USFA Publication entitled "Rapid Intervention Teams and How to Avoid Needing Them", TR-123. If you google "USFA Rapid Intervention Team documents" you will find it. It's got some great info in it, as well as some very "borrowable" wording from a very credible source for future Fire Grant requests.
