  • 1. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures WHY
  • 2. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures SCOPE This SOP meets or exceeds the intent of applicable sections within Chapter 6, Emergency Operations, of NFPA 1500, Standards on Fire Department Occupational Safety and Health Program. It also intends to meet requirements of the OSHA Respirator Protection Standard 1910.134 and OSHA 2 in/2 out Rule 308-134e.
  • 3. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures Purpose The purpose of this Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is to outline the procedures for members entering an IDLH atmosphere or working in and environment recognized to be unstable.
  • 4. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures Purpose
    • Personnel assigned to perform this function will be designated as the Rapid Intervention Team (RIT).
    • The composition and structure of the RIT shall be flexible depending on the type, size and complexity of the incident.
    • Level 1 RIT will consist of no less than two trained members.
  • 5. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • Immediately dangerous to life or health
    • Oxygen level below 19.5%
    • Lower explosive limits in excess of 10%
    • Toxins in excess of the Permissible Exposure Level
    • Confined space, collapse or any other situation recognized to be unstable and could cause injury.
    DEFINITIONS: IDLH
  • 6. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • An atmosphere that poses an immediate threat to life
    • Would cause irreversible adverse health effects or would impair an individual’s ability to escape from a dangerous atmosphere.
    • The interior of a structure involved in fire, beyond the incipient stage, is considered IDLH atmosphere.
    DEFINITIONS: IDLH
  • 7. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • A fire in the initial stage
    • Can be controlled or extinguished using portable extinguishers, or small hose systems
    • Without the need for protective clothing or self-contained breathing apparatus.
    Incipient Stage Fire:
  • 8. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • Report given to Command or Operations that all members of the crew are accounted for.
    • Periodically completed to check on personnel.
    Personal Accountability Report (PAR)
  • 9. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • “ Accountability to unit 3352W PAR?”
    • “ Unit 3352W to Accountability we are PAR w/four.”
    Personal Accountability Report (PAR) Example
  • 10. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • A team consisting of a minimum of two trained members.
    • Duties are to track, and rescue if needed, emergency personnel:
      • Who enter a structure involved in fire beyond the incipient stage (IDLH atmosphere)
      • Who fall victim to an unstable situation (e.g. confined space, collapse) at a emergency scene.
    Level 1 RIT
  • 11. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • A team consisting of a minimum of four trained members
    • Duties are the same as Level 1 RIT
    Level 2 RIT
  • 12. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures Multiple RIT teams shall be referred to as: RIT – 1, RIT – 2, etc. Regardless of Level
  • 13. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • RIT-1W The primary crew
    • RIT-1X The secondary crew
    • There shall be a minimum of two firefighters assigned to each crew.
    • Each crew shall be equipped with a transceiver/radio.
    SPLITTING RAPID INTERVENTION TEAMS
  • 14. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • A verbal notification to the IC that immediate action is required to rescue or assist emergency personnel operating in emergency incidents.
    • May be declared by the individual(s) in trouble or someone who identifies an individual(s) is in trouble.
    MAYDAY
  • 15. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • Sector officer whose function is the tracking of the entry teams and command of rapid intervention operations.
    • Performs no other function but tracking, RIT and/or Accountability if needed.
    • Coordinates with Safety and Accountability Officers, but reports directly to command as noted on the next slide

  • 22. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • RIT shall place the equipment on a tarp in their designated sector.
    IMPLEMENTATION:
  • 23. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • The RIT Group Leader is responsible for the tracking of the Entry Teams.

    • Radio or anyone else who feels this transmission is not being heard should immediately relay this information to command.
    MAYDAY Procedures:
  • 31. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • “ MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, this is unit 7132W, I am located on the first floor side 2-3 and a firefighter has fallen through the floor into the basement, send help”.
    MAYDAY Example
  • 32. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • Command shall deploy the necessary resources needed to assist with a rescue.
    • Other members operating on the scene should be aware of the “MAYDAY” situation. However, they must continue with their assigned tasks. The task they are currently performing may very well limit injury to the person or persons in distress as well as assist the RIT team.
    • Upon the MAYDAY call, a Personal Accountability Report (PAR) shall be initiated.
    MAYDAY Procedures:
  • 33. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • RIT will only be deployed upon orders from the Incident Commander (IC)
    • When RIT is deployed, the rescue shall come under the command of the RIT Group Leader.
    • Other members must continue with their assigned tasks.
    • Fire suppression units may be switched to another channel so as not to interfere with RIT rescue activities.
    Rapid Intervention Procedures

    • Upon the report of a lost or trapped firefighter(s) the RIT Group Leader will immediately concentrate RIT members efforts on rescue and abandon support activities.
    Rapid Intervention Procedures
  • 35. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • RIT Group Leader shall compare information with the Accountability Officer in determining the last known location of the missing personnel.
    • In the event that an Accountability Officer has not been assigned the RIT Group Leader will handle accountability.
    Rapid Intervention Implementation
  • 36. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • The individual(s) who has declared a MAYDAY or is missing shall be identified from the PAR.
    • RIT shall be deployed to the last known location of the lost or trapped personnel.
    • RIT should follow hose lines or routine search patterns and consider standard operating tactics while searching for lost personnel.
    Rapid Intervention Implementation

    • When RIT locates a downed firefighter(s) they shall notify the RIT Group Leader by name who they have located, their location and status.
    • RIT shall advise the actions being taken to remove them or if additional assistance is needed.
    • If a self-rescue or a quick grab and go rescue is not possible, RIT members shall use the “AWARE” principle.
    Rapid Intervention Procedures
  • 38. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • Trapped emergency responder’s hopes of survival depend on the following four critical needs.
    AWARE Principle:
      • 1. Air: RIT should first provide the victim with a redundant (primary & secondary) supply of air.
      • 2. Water: If the rescue involves fire, the next consideration is to provide a defensible space for the victim by using a hose line or distributor to protect the victim.
  • 39. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • 3. A Radio: If the victim is conscious and able to communicate, RIT may want to provide the trapped victim with a transceiver to monitor his condition. Depending upon the size of the incident, a separate radio channel may be designated for the victim to use.
    • 4. Extrication: Removal of the victim.
    AWARE Principle:
  • 40. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures
    • RIT should give the estimated time it will take to complete the rescue and advise the RIT Group Leader or Command of their plan.
    • The RIT Group Leader shall assign additional Rapid Intervention Teams to assist as needed.
    • A Level II RIT shall be in place as soon as staffing allows during an active RIT operation.
    Rapid Intervention Procedures
  • 41. Rapid Intervention Team & MAYDAY Procedures Termination of RIT:
    • RIT can only be terminated when the incident does not meet one of the definitions of an IDLH.
    • Or when responders are not in a Confined space, collapse or any other situation recognized to be unstable that could cause injury.
