One Bad Day: The Proactive Mindset-RIT Operations

Wednesday, April 26
This class will discuss the many facets of RIT, from the command aspect down to the rescue itself. It will define what a RIT is and discuss the difference between a proactive and reactive RIT, then dive into the key factors for success (teamwork, communication, leadership, and preplanning). Once the basic concepts are established, it will address the actual RIT activation process in the following order: the Mayday, size-up, access, search, troubleshooting, air management, victim packaging, extraction, and post extraction care.'
