The Chili Fire Explorers practiced basic Rapid Intervention Team concepts this warm Saturday morning.  Explorers reviewed the basics of RIT guidelines, Mayday calls, and what tools to bring based on the Mayday call.  The rest of the training was hands-on practical scenarios on how to remove a distressed firefighter through holes in a floor or through a basement style window.  Due to the temperatures and humidity, all explorers were required to take breaks between scenarios at the cooling station or in the air conditioned truck and drink plenty of water.  Click on the photo below for more pictures from today's training or go to our Photo Gallery page for more pictures.
