Technical Rescue Systems is very proud of our team….
TRS started in October 1986 and since then we have met so many wonderful people.  We are proud and honored to have such devoted, educated, passionate and really good people working with us.  It is a pleasure and honor to introduce our team to you:

Steve Fleming

Co Owner – Senior Instructor

Steve is the Co Owner Senior Instructor.  Went to college to be an architect…  in the winter of 1976 took a tour of the local fire department… and the rest is history…

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.”41 years later, here we are.

Susanne Fleming

Co Owner – Operations Manager – Assistant Instructor

Susanne grew up in New Orleans and has that amazing southern girl hospitality and charm.  She proudly served in the United States Navy for 4 years as an IC in Guam and Japan.  She has been in the customer service business for over 30 years.  As our co owner and operations manager she is the “go to” person for anything to do with customer service, student record keeping and certification updates.  Susanne has been an intricate part of TRS since 2011.  She is a trained Authorized Climber Rescuer and Competent Person for Personal Protection Equipment Inspection.  When you give us a call she will be there to help you.
