The simplicity of this device will accomplish many objectives on the fire ground. First and foremost the speed of removing a downed firefighter will be decreased drastically by minutes. This limiting the time exposed to the IDLH and fire conditions. The only time we control as a RIT team, is the time it takes for the removal of the firefighter from the IDLH!!!
Next aspect is giving the RIT team an option for removal. There are almost no practical devices for this type of operation. Until now. Very commonly the downed firefighter is almost striped of his gear by the time he is out. The packaging of him in the RAP keeps everything tucked in and reduces his profile for maneuvering around obstacles. And lastly the time it takes to learn how to use the system. The learning curve for the RAP is limited. In a 5 minute session you will have a complete understanding and capability on how to use the RAP. This will help the officers create a more powerful RIT team when called to do the unthinkable.
