Members participated in a Mayday drill using various techniques to extricate down fire fighters in the event a "mayday" was called. The prop was built by members to  simulate a floor collapse. Firefighters practiced Mayday responses and the deployment of a Rapid Intervention Team after receiving a mayday alert. Overview of tools, tasks, predeployment and operational considerations were discussed.
