Mission Statement

“Technical Rescue Systems is committed to keeping current on the latest and safest techniques in teaching, learning environments, fall protection and rescue techniques involving fall protection safety, rescue, drone pilot skills and continuing student services and education.”

Our Mottos:

“We all have a lot to go home to!”, “Safety is Education – Education is Safety” 

The TRS Learning Experience

Our student evaluations often come back saying “I didn’t know how much I didn’t know about rescue!” Our classes are small and intimate and they are VERY eye-opening. There’s a certain rhythm built-in. We start with the basics and ensure full comprehension – and then gradually increase exposure to concepts that are mission-critical to working at height or in close corners. Leave it to a former Fire Captain to ensure you are face-to-face with what could happen in white- knuckle moments.

We keep our classes small and we introduce real-world and ‘real-time’ failure points at critical junctures, so you can know just what can go wrong in the field and up on the tower. When you’ve completed a TRS rescue intensive, you’re ultra-prepared. As we say “Safety is Education – Education is Safety”…. and …. “Our services to our students are just beginning”.

Our Expertise

In 1986 Steve Fleming founded Technical Rescue Systems after discovering a need for effective, memorable and quality technical rescue training. His interest arose as a young firefighter being asked to conduct rescues with limited knowledge. He felt incredible pressure and needed to learn as much as he could. Promotions into Lieutenant and then Captain increased his responsibility even more. Now with over 35 years’ experience and being involved in more than 17,000 emergencies calls, Steve can offer a perspective of “what really matters” and “what has worked in the past – and what didn’t work at all.”

TRS is compliant and trains to the current standards of OSHA, ANSI, NFPA, GWO, FAA and NATE. The company is built upon Respect, Integrity, Trust, and Communication. Our commitment is to those working at height and their prospective companies – and it is palpable.

TRS teaches departments and industrial safety/rescue organizations throughout the world in Emergency Services Rope Rescue, Confined Space Entry & Rescue, Rescuer Safety & Scene Evaluation, Industrial Fall Protection, Communication Tower Climbing and Rescue and Teaching Techniques to adults.
