A firefighter is a man or woman who is trained to put out fires, either in a building or wildland, as well as to provide medical care. A firefighter is either a volenteer, an on call, or career.

Rapid Intervention Crew, or Rapid Intervention Team. A team or crew of atleast 2 firefighters who are kept at an incident scene as a reserve incase a firefighter gets trapped or lost in a dangerous enviorment. The RIC crew is the life line of the firefighters inside an incident building.
No firefighter should enter a building alone or without a RIC crew in place.
