Rapid Intervention Training
This month the Northbridge Fire Department training drill was on RIT (Rapid Intervention Training)
Although we hope we never have to rescue a downed firefighter, we must all keep up our skills in case we do.
Please have a look at the two videos below (narrated by District Chief Lachapelle)
Here are some pics from our May 2018 Drill. We worked on different hose configurations supplying water to our Ladder. In testing we were able to flow approx 1200 gallons per minute out of the ladder pipe.
Our first drill this month was an obstacle couse. While blindfolded we trained on several stations including low profile breach, entanglement trench, dummy drag and confined spaces.
Below are some good pics of the challenges.
