RIC Application

The NHS's Road Incident Responder Branch (more commonly known as RIR) provides general safety and onsite practices for all emergency responders. Additionally, they provide maximum protection for all emergency responders operating at limited access highway incidents. They access highways with high vehicle speeds, in adverse weather conditions, helping heavy trucks, and reducing exposure to motorists with varying degrees of ability, with possible vision, alcohol, and drug impairments. All RIR members understand that the objective is to get onto the highway, perform their duties, help all the people on the island and get off the highway as quickly and efficiently as possible. This will reduce their high-risk exposure and help to get traffic patterns back to normal. RIR always operate within a protected environment at any type of incident on or near a highway.

Ranking Structure

To join RIR as a Tier 1 you must be PAR+ and complete the empty tests. You can express your interest here.

Specialist Vehicles

Road Incident Responder Garage (Branch Vehicles)

Hatchback Sport (Tier 1)

The Hatchback Sport is the modified and mechanically enhanced older sister of the standard Hatchback. With a top speed of 300km/h its extremely fast. The Hatchback Sport is vital to attending Road Traffic Collisions (RTC) where time is paramount. With great speed comes great responsibility as handling this rocket on wheels can be difficult to master. Space for 3 Passengers

MB 4WD (Tier 1)

This classic Jeep lookalike is rather agile and speedy in respect to its shape and look. The MB 4WD is utilized when attending off-road incidents where rough terrain may hinder and may also prevent other vehicles from reaching the casualties. It has a top speed of 196km/h and has a passenger capacity of 3

Offroad Covered (Tier 2)

The offroad covered is a variant of the commonly used offroad, this vehicle accessible to tier 2 members and above is useful when attending incidents on rough terrain much like the MB 4WD, however this vehicle allows for a much more efficient way of carrying passengers giving them the much needed cover from the environment as you race back to the hospital for emergency surgery.

Altis RIR Regulations

All members of the Road Incident Responder team are expected to follow these rules.

  • You must never give an RIR vehicle or equipment to a non RIR medic.
  • As stated above you are expected to follow the speed limits when not responding to an incident.
  • RIR branch members have priority over Coastguard vehicles.
  • Coast Guard boats are NOT for general patrolling - they are only to be used in an emergency at sea.
  • Coast Guard boats can only be piloted by a Paramedic or higher.
  • High visibility vests are meant to be used only while on RIR patrols by RIR members. If not, necessary disciplinary action will be taken. Tier 2 members can wear them on any ground patrol.
  • The CBRN suit and hazmat respirator are Tier 2 perks and should therefore only be used by Tier 2 members.
  • The CBRN suit is only to be used for the uranium field or if there is a roleplay cause and it has been authorised by CST+.
  • The CBRN Suit is not to be used with the hi-vis vest.
