    Default Thoughts on a RIT/Firefighter Safety project?

    I thought I'd get the opinions of you all, and see if anyone's been successful with such a project.

    What I've got in mind is a firefighter safety project that will cover RIT as well. We already have the RIT packs from an SCBA project, so I'm looking at a RIT-dedicated TIC, K-12 saw, and maybe some higher-dollar loose equipment on the RIT aspect. On the firefighter safety end, I'm looking at fit-testing equipment and a cardiac monitor with the CO meter on it for rehab and to evaluate anyone who has smoke exposure.

    I'm sure there are some other things I'll come up with, but that's the heart of it. I think I can link it all in to firefighter safety/survival for a complete project, as well.

    Any thoughts?

    Catch, I had two that were awarded in 2009. One of them being a round 1 award and the other round 3. Seems to be a great program. I think the key here is to include training with it. I think there was another thread on here somewhere where we talked about this at length.

    The training aspect is something I'm going to include in the narrative. I had thought about trying to find some props to add to the project, but I'm not sure what's out there that we can't build. Perhaps a Rescue Randy or something.

    Since I'm a RIT instructor, we can do the training in-house and push a regional impact with offering our neighbors the same training and being able to send our team as auto/mutual aid.

    I've been working on a county-wide plan to get auto-aid in, including one department to respond strictly as RIT (closest department), so this might help that along.

    I like this idea, safety from beginning to end. I think this just might be the project for this year. If anyone could send some narratives to help me brainstorm I'd appreciate it.
