June 1997: "Techniques for Firefighter Rescues" Rick Lasky
March 1998: "The Firefighter Who Has Fallen through the Floor" Rick Lasky and Ray Hoff
December 1997: "Moving the Downed Firefighter Up a Stairwell" Rick Lasky and Tom Shervino
May 1998: "Designing a Firefighter Survival Training Aid" Rick Lasky

These are all that I have in front of me, I would Imagine there are several articles in the 1999 issues but Fire Engineering does the best RIT articles I have read.
These are a few pics we took at a class that we held in December. Just for the heck of it, I just wanted to see if this attacment process works.

Fire Engineering April 1999 "Engine Company Support of RIT/FAST Operations" by Andrew A. Fredericks. 15 pages and chock full of information.

I hope that I haven't missed any. Your local library should have these issues of the magazines listed. If not try the local college.
Reap the benefits of vast amounts of knowledge my brothers. Remember... you can never be prepared enough for this situation.
