Wanted to share a new innovative way of moving RIT equipment on the fire ground. I was assigned to a busy truck for several years where we responded on a tremendous amount of RIT calls. Too many times we were several blocks removed from the fire and by the time my four men got the RIT basket positioned in front of the building they were beat. Add snow or incliment weather and it was compounded. I came up with this device out of necessity. My concerns were centered around a need to get in service quickly, ease of operation and fatigue factor. The TURK allows one firefighter to transport the RIT basket easily while freeing up manpower to run ladders or other needed equipment. The guys love it because its fast and simple, a concept that is lacking in todays fire service. www.turkrescue.com
