    Fire Engineering
    July 1997 :"The RIT Officer" Rick Lasky

    December 1998: "AWARE, A Life Saving Plan for Rescuing Trapped Firefighters" Jay B. Olson

    June 1997: "Techniques for Firefighter Rescues" Rick Lasky

    March 1998: "The Firefighter Who Has Fallen through the Floor" Rick Lasky and Ray Hoff

    December 1997: "Moving the Downed Firefighter Up a Stairwell" Rick Lasky and Tom Shervino

    May 1998: "Designing a Firefighter Survival Training Aid" Rick Lasky

    April 1998: "Removing a Downed Firefighter From a Tight Room and Window" Rick Lasky and Sal Marchese

    April 1993: Confined Space Claims Denver Firefighter in a Tragic Building Fire" David McGrail and Jack Rodgers.

    New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control "Firefighter Survival" Workbook.

    These are all that I have in front of me, I would Imagine there are several articles in the 1999 issues but Fire Engineering does the best RIT articles I have read.

    These are a few pics we took at a class that we held in December. Just for the heck of it, I just wanted to see if this attacment process works.

    The opinions and views expressed herin are solely mine and not on the behalf of any department or organization I belong to.
