Rescue Tools

Firefighting involves more than just putting out flames. Just under 20% of calls to most fire departments are related to fires. Today, firefighters respond to a variety of emergency situations, including – vehicle accidents, building collapses, and toxic chemical spills.

Each emergency is unique and may require different tools to rescue. To find out what tools your department needs, you should know what emergencies are more likely to occur in your area. For example, if you have harsh winters, you may need to be prepared for collisions caused by snow and ice. If you live in an area with drought, you might want to be prepared for larger fires.
