RIT FIRE TRAINING
Firefighters from the Marinette and Menominee Fire Department held three days of Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) training at the Marinette Fire Department Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 11, 12, 13. Firefighters were put through several evolutions on how to assist a firefighter when he is injured in a building fire. The classroom portion introduced firefighters to the concept of rapid intervention and pointed out the equipment needed by a RIT team. On Wednesday, Nov. 13, firefighters set up different scenarios in the old Walmart building at Pine Tree Mall, so they know how to respond to a firefighter Mayday call.
