WILLIAMSBURG, MA – We are trained to help others. What happens when we have to help ourselves?
During June’s tri-town drill, members of the Chesterfield, Goshen and Williamsburg fire departments assembled at the Helen James School to refresh our RIT (Rapid Intervention Team) skills.
The primary reason to set up a rapid intervention team is to find and rescue lost, trapped or injured firefighters on the fireground. Firefighter Alex Kassel and Captain Cory McGill led the group through several practical sessions in the classroom before we donned our gear and put their lessons to the test.
