In September, the ECFA sponsors a week-long Rapid Intervention Crew school at Cape Fear Community College in Castle Hayne in cooperation with New Hanover County Fire Rescue, City of Wilmington Fire Department and the NC Office of State Fire Marshal. Held at the state of the art fire training facility, this physically demanding school tests the skills of even the most veteran firefighters. During the school, students are taught May Day, Firefighter Safety and Survival and Rapid Intervention. Working as teams, crews learn how to self-rescue as well as save our own from scenarios that vary from simple to complex.
Enrollment for 2015 was at capacity, and the 2016 school is on track to be as well. The 2016 RIC School will be held September 12 – 16, 2016. This week long school (48 hours) offers the ability to complete three different NC certifications; May Day, Safety and Survival and Rapid Intervention.
