I need some info. I will be going head to head with a chief in my fire district about RIT. He is the a new chief that has a hard time doing anything that doesn't have an NFPA standard. Conciquently he doesn't believe in RIT. He doesn't think that you need any specialized training to rescue a firefighter in trouble. Well he's right. Except, I would prefer a specialized team to lessen the chances of being found dead.
So, My question. Is there a NFPA standard that covers Rapid Intervention on the fireground? If so would you have a copy that could be sent to me?
