RIT RUN TO DARBY FOR WORKER
Thursday, January 22, 2015 
-
At 1105 hrs Company 8 got hit out for a RIT run to Darby for the working commercial building fire. Just after dispatch the assignment was upgraded to the 2nd alarm. RIT Tac 8 responded with 7 and quickly arrived on location. After checking in with command-(04-9) we let him know that we would meet up with RIT 19. After checking in with 19 who had a position set up on the A-D corner, it was decided RIT 8 would take up a position on the C-D corner to monitor the collapse zone that was established in the rear of this large commercial building. RIT command was able to do a 180* walk around to get familiar with the building as the crew was setting up the RIT cache and starting the saws. While standing by it was requested by Sector C boss to force a door on the adjacent building looking for an alternate entrance into the fire building. The small crew quickly accomplished this task and returned and stood by until we were released by command.

AUXILIARY DRILL
Saturday, January 3, 2015 
-
For the first auxiliary drill of the new year the crew took a healthy approach to training by also getting some exercise while working on air management. Each member wore an air pack while on the treadmill and bike with the goal of recording the furthest combined distance before running out of air. Each person had one bottle on each machine. The average was around a mile and a half on the treadmill and 3 miles on the bike. Most members were able to get 20 plus minutes out of a bottle while on the machines.

OUTBUILDING WITH EXPOSURES
Wednesday, December 24, 2014 
-
This morning at 0336 the box was struck for a building fire on the 800blk of 8th ave in town. Snozzle 8 arrived to find two garages involved, one fully and one partially with exposure to near by homes. 08-9 established Prospect command and Snozzle 8 attacked the fire via the 300ft handline. Rescue 48 laid out and assisted with another handline. The balance of the 8 house along with crews from Ridley Park and Norwood assisted the attack and checking for extension. RIT duties were covered by Holmes. The combined team made short work of the job with no extension to the near by homes and the second garage being saved also. Great work by all units and another fine example of a quick attack saving the day.
