Along with Self-Survival and Mayday, the RIC course forms a three-tiered program that focuses on the development of risk assessment and risk management, communication procedures, personnel accountability and resource management, RIC deployment criteria, activation and management of rapid intervention operations with the main focus of the course structured to reduce the risk to RIC members and maximize the potential of rescuing a downed firefighter.
Students will have a thorough understanding of search techniques, victim access and extrication, air supply/management techniques, methods for protecting firefighters in place, methods for moving downed firefighters, and firefighter rescue techniques.
