Tactical Fire Problem – Firefighter Down Floor 2

This week we have a firefighter down on floor 2 of a wood frame apartment building.

1.) At your next training, activate a PASS device on floor 2 of a building and determine how difficult it might be to hear from the outside. Inside crews will hear it easily. How do you normally respond on your Fireground when a device operates?

2.) How will you make this rescue?

3.) What is a valid plan B or your second means of rescue?

4.) When was your last training drill using your RIT pack?

5.) Has your RIT training involved the rescue of a 3 person crew?

We all like to do complicated RIT training, but does our training match what is likely to happen in the field?

Think about it!
