How to get a FAST team started?
There are about 4-5 guys right now on my department who are currently throwing the idea around to get a FAST/RIT team started in our department. But where do we start? heres some ideas ive come up with so far:
Everyone who wants in must take the initial FAST team class at the academy which is all classroom time.
We need to have at LEAST one FAST team drill per month.
Other then this im not sure where to go, or how to present this to the higher ups.
We all kind of agree that our ladder truck (95' platform seen here:http://www.jtfd1.org/728.htm ) Already has a bunch of good tools that a FAST team would use has plenty of ladders and irons on it. How many guys should we aim for (obivously as many as possible) but in reality. any other requirements that anyone knows of or information would be great! Thanks for your help brothers and sisters!
