    Our fire dept. does have an SOP for RIT. We do not require our teams to bring in a handline. We will either use a search line anchored outside the structure or the hoseline used on the initial attack

    I have a couple of powerpoints that I use to teach RIT.

    I also teach a 12 hour class on a regional basis which is about 75% hands-on. I'd be happy to give you the practical skill lesson plan as well.

    I also have a self-rescue class that I teach.

    Train to fight the fires you fight.

    While the Denver Drill does have limited value in most RIT situations, it does work well as a team problem solving and communications exercise. To me, that is it's primary value.

    Look at the buildings in your district and potential problems that the construction will create when it comes to removing a firefighter, then design your drills around your district.

    Looking for an outside vendor to come in to teach and certify firefighters in RIT training that is NFPA 1407 compliant.

    Has anyone done this and who did you use. Located in Northeast (more specifically Maine).

    We base our RIT structure off FDTN training. http://www.fdtraining.com/NewCourses...or-Rapid-11481


    We utilize a notation in our CAD that gets us a RIT team prompt at 3 mins into a potentional strucutre fire call. It is up the the first due officer to fill the RIT box if they feel there is a fire and not a false call.
