Whether you're a career or volunteer firefighter, you have probably learned how to declare a MAYDAY, if you find yourself in unexpected danger. You may also have learned and trained to be a member of a RIT/RIC team. But, do you know what to do on an emergency scene if you are NOT the one who called the MAYDAY, AND...you're not on a RIT/RIC team?
Of course, our "gut" reaction is to drop whatever we're doing and run over to the scene to help. However, that will rarely be the correct action to take!

Thanks, Jim. Your point is well taken and was a part of the presentation in this webinar from this past January. We discussed that in both Chief Don Abbott's "MAYDAY Project" and numerous NIOSH reports, the initial MAYDAY call over the radio was barely heard or not heard at all. And sadly, Brother Torres may have lost his life due to the same reasons.

Thanks for the tip regarding the BFD's MAYDAY training videos on YouTube. I'll check them out and share what I find our our website, www.5-alarmtaskforcecorp.org.

Stay Safe & Stay Well!
