Not So Technical Rescue

John Gilkey, Keith Cerzullo, Keith Dominick, Dave Gilkey

Description: Fire ground RIT operations are very dynamic requiring firefighters to think on their feet and adapt to changing environments.

This session combines a mixture of technical concepts with fire ground rescue situations to train the RIT operator in methods to overcome every day fire ground obstacles.

A minimalistic approach to equipment combined with a good dose of commonsense rounds out a day of practical sessions removing downed firefighters from situations above and below grade.
