East Metro I-70 Combined RIT Training
East Metro I-70 RIT Training
On June 20th, 2020 East Metro I-70 Corridor Fire Departments conducted RIT training for the current East Metro Fire Academy Recruit class. A donated structure was used to set-up several challenging scenarios in tight quarters and in a basement. The recruits were met with narrow and confined spaces, zero-visibility,and other obstacles, as they had to work as a team to extricate a “trapped” firefighter. Experienced career and volunteer firefighters from the I-70 agencies were partnered with the recruits to provide guidance and mentorship.
Participating Agencies: Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue, Byers Fire Protection District, Sable Altura Fire Rescue and Strasburg Fire Protection District
