A mayday call is something all firefighters dread.
However, mayday training is imperative for crews to understand what trapped firefighters must do to increase their chances of survival. Your goal for every training exercise is to at least master the basics. It will be the basics that you will remember in a RIT or mayday situation. That’s why we train for the worst.
Here’s a quick quiz, provided by our online training partner FireEMS Academy, to test your knowledge on Mayday-RIT training. After taking the quiz, you’ll understand the basics of mayday and RIT training, what the firefighter down drill is all about, the importance of delivering a LUNAR, conditions that will demand calling a mayday and more.
