    Default Need some opinions

    What would you say if:

    Your RIT setup was a 3" line supplied from your primary pumper that your attack lines are coming off. Manned by one firefighter and the driver of the primary/first in pumper.

    I'd say you don't HAVE a RIT setup.

    I would say that there is no RIT on scene. Two guys is completely inadequate for RIT.
    Also, if that is the official RIT policy a department has, and the department puts that policy in writing, someone needs to raise a serious stink about that specefic policy. If your unionized, the safety committee should be all over it, no questions asked.

    Whoever set up this policy has no interest in doing RIT properly.

    So what does this accomplish? Putting a lot of water on a fire (presumably from the outside) while FFs are trapped inside? Like said above, that is in no way a "RIT" setup, I would barely call it "2 in 2 out".

    Yep...official written SOP.

    And it is labeled as the RIT/Exposure line. Intended for both interior(RIT) and exterior attack.

    I know of a Fire Chief who tried this manuever in an attempt to get around 1710.......He immediately had a ULP thrown at him by the union....... (whistles innocently)
