2NIOSH REPORT July 4, 1997 @ 2240 – Residential Fire On arrival – Heavy smoke and fire along front edge of roof1 ¾ “ to atticCommunications between firefightersFirefighter #2 experienced air supply problemMAYDAY calledFirefighter #2 rescuedFirefighter #1 found later
3DISCUSSION Do you think this could happen here? Do you think this can happen to you?
4TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVES After lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice, given a specific situation, the student shall mitigate a SCBA/air supply emergency with 100% accuracyAfter lecture discussion, demonstration and practice, acting as part of a RIT/RIC and given a specific situation, the student shall mitigate a downed firefighter SCBA/air supply emergency with 100% accuracy
5ENABLING LEARNING OBJECTIVES After lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice the student shall identify the components of the Scott AP50 with 100% accuracy.After lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice the student shall identify the components of the Scott RIT PAK 1 with 100% accuracy.
6ENABLING LEARNING OBJECTIVES After lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice the student shall identify 5 possible solutions for a low air emergency with a crewmember with 100% accuracy.After lecture, discussion, demonstration and practice the student shall identify 3 possible uses of the EBSS Dual-Manifold with 100% accuracy.

18EBSS – DUAL MANIFOLD EBSS – Emergency Breathing Support System Introduction of air from outside sourceLadder air systemRIT BagAnother SCBA (buddy breathing)On left side waist beltIn snap pouch
19EBSS – DUAL MANIFOLD Male and Female coupling 3 foot hose Quick disconnectSupply or receive3 foot hoseDual protective cover
20EBSS – DUAL MANIFOLD Extended Duration air supply (aerial ops) Use male couplingOperates as open-circuit, pressure demandEmergency Breathing (Buddy breathing)Used for escape onlyUtilizes highest pressure bottleOne bottle can be turned off to conserve airCan “Daisy-Chain” up to 3 usersWill not provide enough air for >3
21RIC UAC – RAPID INTERVENTION UNIVERSAL AIR CONNECTION FOR EMERGENCY USE ONLY!Permits emergency replenishment of airNot a quick chargeWithin 6” of neck of bottle on all NFPA 1981 (2002) compliant SCBA’s
22RIC UAC – RAPID INTERVENTION UNIVERSAL AIR CONNECTION Before use ensureNo compromise of cylinder or air systemDentsGougesOther significant damageAny other air system/UAC damageRespirator/Regulator compatibility2216 PSI RIT Pack w/ 2216 PSI SCBA4500 PSI RIT Pack w/ 4500 PSI SCBAReceiving cylinder is fully open
23WARNING!!!Utilizing RIC UAC for emergency air replenishment of a structurally compromised cylinder will result in an over pressurization explosion.
29HIGH PRESSURE UAC 5’ high pressure hose Air directly from bottle Side Pocket of PackAir directly from bottleUAC – Universal Air Connection w/ cap
30RIC UAC – RAPID INTERVENTION UNIVERSAL AIR CONNECTION Permits emergency replenishment of airNot a quick chargeWithin 6” of neck of bottle on all NFPA 1981 (2002) compliant SCBA’s
31OPERATION OF UAC Ensure RIT cylinder valve is fully open Extend high pressure UAC hoseRemove protective capEnsure SCBA cylinder valve is fully open
32OPERATION OF UAC Locate UAC on receiving SCBA Remove protective cap Align and push – UAC will self-lockConnection will self lockCylinder pressures will equalize
33OPERATION OF UAC BEFORE USE ENSURE No compromise of cylinder or air systemDentsGougesOther significant damageAny other air system/UAC damageRespirator compatibility2216 PSI RIT Pack w/ 2216 PSI SCBA4500 PSI RIT Pack w/ 4500 PSI SCBA
34TERMINATION OF UAC Pull back UAC collar and pull UAC from SCBA Turn off RIT cylinderReplace protective capPress center of cap to vent residual pressure
35TERMINATION OF UAC WARNING!!! DO NOT attempt to vent pressure without cap on. This will inject high pressure air into skin.
36LOW PRESSURE HOSE 5’ HOSE 2 Connections AV-3000 face piece EBSS – Air from highest pressure cylinderSchraderDouble male adapter for female EBSSAV-3000 face pieceSame mask as issueEZ-Flo II RegulatorQuick disconnectNo electrical connectionNo HUD
37OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE Examples of when RIT low pressure hose should be usedFF low on airFailure of maskFailure of regulatorFailure of SCBAStructural compromise of cylinder
38OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE Multiple OptionsEBSS to EBSSEBSS to regulatorEBSS and regulator to maskEBSS, regulator and maskRescue operations
39OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE EBSS to EBSSAlign EBSS and pushCoupling self locksAir from highest pressure cylinderCan turn off SCBA cylinder to conserve airWill not hot charge SCBA
40OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE EBSS to regulatorTurn on RIT cylinderDisconnect coupling from SCBAAlign coupling with EBSS and pushNo electrical connectionNo HUD
41OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE EBSS and regulator to maskAlign coupling with EBSS and pushNo electrical connectionNo HUDTurn on RIT cylinderRemove regulator from SCBAReplace with RIT regulator
42OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE EBSS, regulator and maskAlign coupling with EBSS and pushNo electrical connectionNo HUDTurn on RIT cylinderRemove regulator and mask from FFReplace with RIT regulator and mask
43OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE Rescue operationsAlign coupling with EBSS and pushNo electrical connectionNo HUDTurn on RIT cylinderPlace mask on civilian
44OPERATION OF LOW PRESSURE HOSE NOTICE:RIT PAK(s) are for OUR SafetyRIT PAKs should only be used for civilian rescue if a RIT teams have been established with dedicated RIT PAK(s).
