Where firefighters come to talk training

Pittsburgh RIT team saves two firefighters

The below message is from our good brother Asst. Chief Jim Crawford of PBF. I received this in an email and felt it was in the best interest of everyone on here to pass this on.

"This is why all of us push, prode, and drive our points home as to why we train and do certain things...

Today, Pittsburgh had a successful RIT rescue of two firefighters who fell into a basement and became trapped after the stairwell they were climbing collapsed. Our GO Team did a fabulous job and I am very proud of them..."
