New Equipment Put in Service
Monday, November 20, 2017 
-
New additions to RIT TAC8. More enhancements to improve service. New products, some new processes and as always hard core aggressive Pro-Active RIT. Recently added a STIHL metal cutting saw that it battery operated. It is lighter than the gas saws and can be used in a smoke filled environment. We have also upgraded the wheels on our RIT basket to make moving our RIT equipment to the scene less taxing on our members, saving energy for the fire ground.
