Since the implementation of Rapid intervention Team (RIT) the portability of the RIT basket on the fire ground has proven to be an arduous task. The average weight of the RIT basket with tools is in excess of 200 lbs., requiring four members to transport the basket from apparatus to the fire ground. This process is fatiguing to the RIT members and presents the question of physical readiness of the team in the event a MAYDAY is declared. Not to mention 4 men are not always available to move the eqipment. I developed a rescue kart called the TURK. It alows 1 F/F To transport the basket freeing up more man power to run ladders or other equipment. I'm interested in hearing some feed back how other departments move their RIT equipment.
