Firefighter Safety/Survival/Rapid Intervention Teams (RIT)

  • Date/Time:
    • Saturday, March 5, 0800-1700
  • Class Limit: 24 students
  • Description:
    • This program teaches self‐rescue and the rescue of lost and/or trapped firefighters. This intensive training was developed in response to the tragic deaths of many firefighters in the nation, including Utah.  Many of those who perished did so because they could not get themselves out of various working conditions. 
      Unfortunately, on several occasions, as a fire community, we have also been unsuccessful in removing our fellow firefighters from difficult RIT situations.  We train our firefighters in confined space, hazardous materials, infectious disease control, and incident command, but we have left out the most important topic... personal safety.  This course teaches firefighters how to save their own lives and the life of another firefighter.   
      The Firefighter Survival course covers conditions and situations which may pose a risk to firefighters and offers solutions both in the classroom and on the drill ground.  These could be some of the most important days of your life.  Don’t miss this class.
  • Special Instructions:  Students must be able to obtain a proper seal with the SCBA facepiece.  It is recommended by UFRA that all students be clean shaven before attending this class.  Students must be in good physical condition and capable of working in a high stress survival training environment
  • Safety PPE requirements: Each student needs to bring their own PPE. Full firefighter PPE (turnout pants and coat, NFPA structural firefighting boots, gloves, Nomex hood) including SCBA and firefighting helmet.
    Protective clothing and equipment must be in good condition.
