Tonight, during one of our in-house trainings, our firefighters concentrated on orienting themselves with the RIT (Rapid Intervention Team) packs we have on our engines and using them in the event of a downed firefighter. Later on, we mimicked the environment of a smoky house with limited to zero visibility. We had one firefighter play the role of a downed firefighter, while another went in, assessed the situation, and supplied the downed firefighter with air. They then called for a proper mayday to command and waited for assistance to remove the down firefighter.
