Rapid Intervention Teams and Fire Ground Survival

Greetings Brothers!
Today's Topic is about Rapid Intervention Teams, their Staffing, and Assignments based on the number of personnel on the R.I.T. The term R.I.T. stands for Rapid Intervention Team. In other areas of the country and in other areas of our county there are slightly different names for these teams. The City of Salisbury uses a dual concept of F.A.S.T. Truck and backs it up with the Mutual Aid R.I.T. Team.

This article from is a great place for us to begin looking at how to operate with 2 person, 3 person, 4 person and with even larger R.I.T. Teams.
This is just a starting point.

We need to develop a set of SOG's relative to Serving on a RIT Team for other Departments and how we are going to set up our own RIT.
