RIT Class

This weekend, members from West Lake along with various area departments attended a RIT class hosted by West Lake.

The class utilized a vacant house on W. 20th Street, in the first due, just south of the Erie International Airport.

“RIT” – Rapid Intervention Team, also known as “FAST” team, are critical assignments on the scene of structure fires. In the case of an emergency declared by firefighters, these teams are deployed to search, find and rescue those firefighters.

Special thanks to Kip Hayford and Ryan Kennedy for instructing the class.
