This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Newton Fire recently hosted National Rescue Consultants to train all their members in Firefighter Rescue. NRC brought a number of different RIT tactics that one could apply in the field. Using our Ruth-Lee manikin, they were able to demonstrate different moving and packaging techniques; then they broke our members up into smaller groups where they "rescued" each other. The training was delivered over a course of three weeks at Umass Mt.Ida campus. We successfully trained over 180 members of our department, keeping us sharp for one of the most important jobs on the fireground.
