Our most popular series of classes, firefighter rescue training is an important and vital necessity for ALL firefighters. Whether you have an established RIT or FAST team or you are a rookie firefighter, all members should know how to rescue a brother or sister firefighter. Many of the techniques offered are lessons learned from tragedy.
Becoming lost, trapped or in distress is the worst possible situation and the one most feared by all firefighters. However, learning skills to help recognizing these situations, becoming more proactive and help for firefighters to overcome these obstacles may greatly improve firefighters chances of survival.
Fire/Rescue safety harnesses, such as the RIT or Gemtor Class II harness are quickly becoming a "standard issue" item in the fire service. Due to a demand for an "orientation" type class, we have developed a 2-4 hour class that includes both lecture and hands-on training. First Due Training & Safety Consultants is a Qualified Trainer for the Gemtor and RIT Class II Harnesses.
