    Post RIT versus "buddy-breathing" adaptors and/or "transfill" connectors

    Does your fire department consider the RIT to be a replacement for having "buddy-breathing" adaptors or "transfill" (quickfill) connectors on the airpaks worn by fire fighters working in a burning building? In other words, if you have a RIT, then why have the adaptors and/or the connectors, because the RIT will handle all of the fire fighter air supply emergencies in a burning building?

    My fire dept has Survivair packs with the second connection on them. We have decided not touse them due to the fact that you'll empty your tank in at least half the time. In doing so, you're putting yourself and the other ff at a great risk.
