$49.50
Help ensure fire service rapid intervention crews (RICs) have the knowledge and training to safely and effectively come to the aid of firefighters in distress.

In an industry where putting your life on the line can be part of your everyday duties, fire departments have a responsibility to provide the capabilities to support personnel in imminent danger. NFPA 1407, Standard for Training Fire Service Rapid Intervention Crews, 2020 edition, offers comprehensive criteria for developing the well-ordered operational capacity to conduct firefighter rescue operations. The standard applies to both emergency scene or training exercises in which department members are lost, injured, trapped, disoriented, or otherwise incapacitated.

While many NFPA standards refer to rapid intervention teams, NFPA 1407 specifically addresses the need for a document that outlines training programs for these specialized units. Content is consistent with provisions in:

  • NFPA 1710, Standard for the Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations, Emergency Medical Operations, and Special Operations to the Public by Career Fire Departments
  • NFPA 1720, Standard for the Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations, Emergency Medical Operations, and Special Operations to the Public by Volunteer Fire Departments
  • NFPA 1500, Standard on Fire Department Occupational Safety, Health, and Wellness Program

NFPA 1407, 2020 edition, is revised to reflect the latest knowledge and best practices for rapid intervention crew training.

Fully reviewed and updated for the first time since the 2014 edition, the Standard for Training Fire Service Rapid Intervention Crews offers the most relevant information to assist in fire department training of RICs.

Edits and additions include:

  • Changes throughout to better align with Manual of Style for NFPA Technical Committee Documents
  • Revised referenced publications and extracted material to ensure consistency
  • Clarification of requirements to ensure fire departments are accomplishing the tasks particularly related to door control to limit fire spread and rapid room orientation as it applies to firefighters falling from one level to a lower level
  • Recognized the definition of a RIC from NFPA 1710 to acknowledge that minimum staffing of the RIC must consist of at least one officer and three members

Be sure you are referencing the most current requirements for fire service RIC training to help maintain safety and compliance.
