RIC Refresher Breakdown

Saws, irons, ladders and rescues were the flavor of week for our brothers in Bluffton, SC. Safe Firefighter, LLC just wrapped up a RIC Refresher for the Bluffton Township Fire District. Training included calling the Mayday, self-rescue, rapid intervention crew assignments and operations and performing proactive RIC tasks.

Luckily, each company was able to train with their own crew which made the training that much better. As a result of their hard work, the BTFD logged the following stats:

  • 48 training hours
  • 320 staff hours
  • 320 Maydays called
  • 160 “window bars” cut
  • 160 “slide bolts” cut
  • 80 “padlocks” and chain cut
  • 80 hinges cut
  • 80 doors force w/ the irons
  • 80 windows laddered and vented by 1 firefighter
  • 21 RIC deployments
  • 21 downed firefighters rescued
Everyone’s great attitudes and efforts made the last two weeks a blast and an awesome training environment!
Thanks to everyone who participated, to the BTFD Training Division and Command Staff for their help and support. As always we appreciate the feedback we received from everyone and there’s no doubt that future training will be made better from your ideas and observations.
We would also like to thank our partners, Desert Diamond Industries, Leatherhead Tools and Avon Mfg. Their continued support enables to provide the most realistic training with the best equipment, all made in the USA!
