We are one of the larger Departments in the Country and we will never get 30 to 40 firefighters on an initial box. Our standard box will get you 27 max, including an ambulance. Many times the ambulance arrives with the first due engine and assumes RIT duties prior to later arriving engines. This crew may have the RIT responsibility for the duration of the incident. RIT is requiring us to become more creative with our resources but it is long over-due. RIT, however controversial it may be to manpower, is for our own safety. It's about firefighters saving firefighters.
