Rit/fast Vs 2in/2out
I have a question there is a debate in my department that RIT/FAST and 2in/2out are the same thing. I do not believe they are. If anyone has any factual (NFPA codes) can write me and let me know I would appreciate it.

Let's see if I can do this any justice. The 2-in/2-out is a rule or law or what have you. The RIT/FAST is the result of the law which was designed to help with it. Any dept can have 2 in while having 2 out and comply with this rule. RIT to me is a trained team designed for the chances of having trapped or unaccounted for firefighters.
I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for but try: http:\\www.iaff.org/safe/pdfs/2in2out.pdf
