    Default What are the new terms or innovations???

    Ok, many of us take classes, reads magazines and forums and keep up with the changing fire service to educate ourselves. Help me here with a training session please.
    If I have not read a fire magazine or taken an extra class in the past 5 years what would I not know today?
    I've come up with:
    PAR
    NIMS
    RIT
    Denver Drill
    Smooth Bore vs Fog

    What can you add?
    Thanks

    For those of us that may not know a term or use it in our part of the country could you please explain the acronyms you use. I'm not sure what IMT means

    Same for PAR, RIT & Denver drill (at least here).

    The only new things I can think of are just different names for the same thing. FAST & RIG come to mind. Off hand, dont recall anything new other then NIHMS. Maybe its been a slow 5 years.

    Now, go back 20 years and then you have something.

    I get the impression this thread bothers some because all departments and FF's are not as advanced as your department. My department just got a TIC 10 months ago, hence it's new to us. We do not have a RIT bag or do much RIT training, hence it's new to us.

    Maybe I should have said new in the past 10 years.

    Which do you need a definition for? RIT, SCBA, NIHMS? If you meant Denver, its the name of a city in Colorado.

    The one that threw me was PAR which I would assume to mean personal accountability report... but I may be incorrect in that. I know where Denver is.... it's 20 miles down the road.

    A very good friend of mine's FD had all their personnel go through RIT training.

    The Deputy in Charge of training came up with the name for the unit assigned on the alarm to act as the RIT. The unit would bea assigned as the "Firefighter Assistance and Rescue Team".


    Imagine the Deputy's surprise when, at a working fire, my friend came over the air acknowledging that his Engine company was assigned to that run as the "FART" Company!

    The Deputy tried to change it after the first incident, but the name has stuck!

    UNDER the clouds! If there weren't clouds today you could see the real mountains from that shot... the 14K peaks instead of the foothills.

    CaptG, there is a regional police response team in my area that responds to fatal mva's. They named themselves Fatal Accident Response Team. Ordered up some shirts and now walk around with FART printed real big on the back of their shirts.

    They are abused mercilessly.
