Do you do your own RIT???
We have trained and established RIT in our firehouse. We have gone as far as designating an engine specifically for RIT. The debate and realization now is having enough manpower to make it happen everytime. Our RIT engine is the 2nd engine out taking 5 firefighters away from the initial attack process. There's a great possibility now that the 2nd initial attack engine in could be the 4th apparatus on scene.
My question to the forum is does your department provide its own RIT or depend on a Mutual Aid Company to provide it? We can provide RIT to our neighbors with no problem, but providing it for ourselves has become an issue.
