RIT Operations occur when a firefighter calls a Mayday on a fire scene. RIT takes basic firefighting techniques and expands on those techniques, so we can quickly and efficiently remove an injured firefighter from a dangerous situation.

Last night we split up into multiple teams of 3-4 people and had to rotate crews in order to rescue a downed fireman. All members had their SCBA masks covered to simulate zero visibility.
