RESCUE TECHNOLOGY™ was founded in 1982 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 significant 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 more straightforward 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 brand names (Rigger, RescueTECH, ACCESS™ Lifelines, EGRESS™ Personal Escape Ropes, PROBE™ Search Lines). During the '80s, '90s, and most of the early part of the '00s, we were the largest supplier of Yates, Rescue Systems, Blue Water, and other prominent rescue equipment to the fire and industrial rescue market. However, as we grew, we found that some manufacturers could not maintain our required level of performance or product enhancements. So, we started building much of our equipment. And, in production areas where we knew 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 floor space to our facility. In 2008 we added 3,000 sq ft. of additional warehouse space to handle our ever-growing inventory. We own our facility and have another 3 acres of land to expand our operations. RESCUE TECHNOLOGY is a Manufacturer and Stocking Distributor of the products we sell. We currently maintain one of the most extensive inventories of technical rescue equipment to serve our customers faster than our competition. We are the exclusive distributor for Ruth Lee Training Manikins and are the primary rescue distributor for ISC Wales, MFC, Reach and Rescue, SIT Inflatables, and CQC Carbon Fiber ladders and rescue cradles

Since 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, prusik cords, and 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 services 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 developing standards and rescue equipment gives RESCUE TECHNOLOGY a unique opportunity to provide our customers and clients with the optimum selection of rescue equipment.

In 2007, Rescue Technology was awarded certification to ISO 9001. After a year of development, documentation, and self-audits, SGS approved our system and certified Rescue Technology's Quality Management system to comply with ISO 9001 standards. In the Fall of 2019, we were re-certified by SGS to ISO9001 quality control standards.
