Rapid Intervention Team
In 2004, the Public Safety Department Fire Division implemented a Rapid Intervention Team (R.I.T.). The team consists of one public safety sergeant and eight firefighters. The members are specially trained and equipped to rescue firefighters and civilians trapped in building fires. The team trains at least once a month over and above regular fire training.
