Just saying "Hello
First of all I would like to say how much I enjoy the Fire House Magazine. There is a lot of information that can be used by all.
Being a firefighters was my dream as a kid growing up. I lived about a block from a fire station, and found it fascinating how big the truck were and knew then I wanted to be a firefighter.
I've been a Griffith, Indiana firefighter for 14 years and currently hold the rank of captain of station 3. I am also the senior training officer for our department. I am in the process of establishing a Rapid Intervention Team concept and could use any information about training, and RIT procedures. I conduct training twice a month
and FFI&II training twice a week, so I spend a lot of time at the station, either training new firefighters or routine duties as a Captain.
Hope to hear from other firefighters out there soon

Til then take care and enjoy your time in the forum.

Hey Mike, welcome aboard. I have alot info on RIT teams and self rescue . Some of the things I do with my crew is first get back to basics; staying low,B/A training,knowing where in the building your located at all times. I do alot of drills on getting a downed firefighter out of building , upstairs, out of windows, down ladders. If you need specific drills let me know.
