is a division of RescueTECH1, Inc. Our purpose is to provide tactical
personnel with the same high quality life safety gear that is required
by professional technical rescuers. From Ropes to Harnesses, from Slings
to bags, our products are made in the U.S.A. using our exacting quality
control and manufacturing standards.
RescueTECH1, Inc was founded to
provide rescuers with a quality source for Rope Rescue and other
Technical Rescue Equipment. We worked hand-in-hand with manufacturers
during the developmental years of technical rope rescue and saw a great
change in the rescue field. Stronger ropes, rescue grade hardware,
harnesses, and slings were developed. Standards, such as NFPA 1983, were
written. New rescue techniques provided for simpler and safer rescues.
We are proud of our role in the formative years of technical rescue.
Over the years, we added many
manufacturers to our product line as well as started our own brand names
(Rigger, RescueTECH, ACCESS Lifelines, EGRESS Personal Escape Ropes,
PROBE Search Lines). During the 80's, 90's and most of the early part of
the 00's, we were the largest supplier of Yates, RSI, Blue Water and
other prominent rescue equipment to the fire and industrial rescue
market. We found, however, as we grew, some manufacturers could not
maintain our required level of performance or product enhancements. So,
we started building much of our own equipment. And, in production
areas where we new others could meet our needs, we partnered with some
of the leading manufacturers to produce our products, our way.
Our facilities have grown from a
small 1,000 square foot office / warehouse to a 12,000 square foot
office, warehouse, and manufacturing facility that we built in the
Summer of 2000. Since that date, we have continued to add warehouse,
production and testing floorspace to our facility. In 2008 we added
3,000 sq ft. of additional warehouse space to handle the ever-growing
amount of inventory that we stock. We own our facility and we have
another 3 acres of land on which to expand our operations. RescueTECH1,
Inc is a Manufacturer and Stocking Distributor of the products we sell.
We currently maintain one of the largest inventory of technical rescue
equipment in order to serve our customers faster than our competition.
2000, we have expanded our production facility to allow us to
manufacture more complex bags and harnesses. In 2005, we designed and
introduced our ACCESS lifelines and prusik cords and our VANGUARD Rope
Rescue Harness. In 2006 we introduced the Ruth Lee Training Manikins
and an extensive line of sewn rescue equipment packs and bags. We
continue to increase our manufactured product line to help us maintain
the quality of the products and service we offer to rescuers.
Our personnel have extensive
experience in rope manufacturing, rescue, and fire operations. With
over 35 years of total experience in the manufacturing of Life Safety
Products, our senior production staff is uniquely qualified to design
and manufacture the highest quality products. Our continuing
participation in the development of standards and rescue equipment gives
RescueTECH1, Inc a unique opportunity to provide our customers and
clients with the optimum selection of rescue equipment.
Rescue Technology maintains certification to ISO 9001-2008. After a year of development,
documentation and self-audits, SGS approved our system and certified
Rescue Technology's Management and Quality system to be compliant with
ISO 9001-2008 standards. In the Fall of 2008 we were recertified by SGS
to ISO 9001-2008 quality control standards.
