Enjoyed your recent article in Fire Engineering regarding RIT. One aspect of RIT that is seldom addressed in getting in service. As a F/F in DC I recognized a capability gap in getting in service fast and safely with my RIT. I developed a RIT kart, (TURK) Turnell, Universal, Rescue, Kart. It’s a fast and simple way of deploying the RIT basket. Guys love it because it’s simple. I have not approached the west coast yet because I'm not sure how they deploy their RIT. Take a look at our website and let me know what you think. My contact info is on the website.

Be safe! Greg

Man my doctor upped my pain killers to morphine pills. So now I'm on morphine pills, norco pain killers, vicodin, xanax and soma. I feel like I'm in a constant la la land. This sucks. No pain, but still sucks feeling this way.

That is crazy about the college thing lol. Yeah, I've been on the pain killers for a while now, since the original injury. Sometimes I stop taking them for a week or two and I feel myself get kinda shaky for a day or two, so I won't be taking that many. I've decided I will be returning to the service after my physical rehab, so most likely the summer of next year.

No Sir. It was out in the county, the volunteer depts. handled it. It's been about 2 months since we've had a job. Business is slow.

The couple you traveled with wasn't a Battalion Chief from Shelby was it? My Batt. Chief adopted a child from China a couple of years ago.
