Regarding RIT, I prefer to pro actively assign a RIG (rapid intervention group). Here's how I do this: Lets say I'm going to assign Engine 34 (three personnel) rapid intervention. I make the company officer the RIG supervisor and assign the remaining two members (driver and firefighter) the RIT. The RIT reports to the RIG. Should there be an actual intervention, the front-loaded RIG supervisor will be far more valuable than three-person rapid intervention team.
