The staff of TES˛ returned to the great state of Texas for yet another offering of the Tactical Operations for RIT Deployment course. Granbury Fire Department hosted the 20-hour course with numerous representatives from throughout north Texas in attendance.
The 20-hour offering included a four-hour multi-media lecture on proactive RIT Operations and Fireground Safety & Survival followed by 16 hours of intense hands-on training.
Using an abandoned restaurant, the staff of TES˛ constructed a detailed search line survival course followed by a full day of RIT deployment scenario training detailing the newly developed “Objective Based Deployment Operations for Rapid Intervention Teams.”
The course included firefighter rescue operations, command and control for the fireground Mayday, personnel accountability, relay rescue operations and extensive air management training.
The staff of TES˛ would like to thank Chiefs Homer Robertson, Scott Cook and the members of the Granbury Fire Department for their wonderful hospitality and hard work in planning this program.
Funding for this offering of the Tactical Operations for RIT Deployment was provided by a 2004 Fire Act Grant received by the Granbury Fire Department.
