Fire departments nationwide have established Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) procedures for fireground safety since the inception of NFPA Standard 1407.
The dangers to hazardous materials responders, working in chemical protective clothing, are equally as present at a hazmat incident as they are on a fireground.
This 4 hour course establishes best practices for establishing a Rapid Intervention team (RIT) as part of the overall Site Safety and management of a hazardous materials incident.
This course qualifies for EMS Continuing Medical Education (CME) and training requirements towards Illinois OSFM recertification for "Hazardous Materials First Responder Operations".
