Base for exercise presentation - fire simulation trailer
In order to prepare fire brigades for their operational tasks, it is very important to conduct realistic exercises. On the other hand, however, there is the time available to prepare and set up the exercise, as the tasks of the fire brigade are becoming more and more extensive. The exercise objects in the communities are often limited in availability. For this reason, the Vorarlberg State Fire Brigade Association has developed the fire simulation trailer project and worked out with the fire brigade Zwischenwasser as a base for the exercise presentation. The focus was on a realistic exercise presentation which can be set up and dismantled quickly.

Review GPEC 2020 in Frankfurt
From the 18th to the 20nd of February 2020 we exhibited at the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference (GPEC) in Frankfurt. The fair is an independent information platform for internal security agencies such as the police, border guards, government information and security services, civil and emergency authorities, law enforcement and judiciary, and military units.
From the numerous prospective customers and the great discussions we were impressed. Especially the different Ruth Lee training dolls were very well received. Likewise, the possibility of individual holster and bag production tailored to the needs of the customer was met with great interest by the visitors.
Exercise for (almost) all senses
If you ask the participants of an exercise what is most important to them for a successful exercise, the answer is very often: "It should be as realistic as possible". But what does realistic actually mean here and how can we achieve this goal? This can be illustrated by means of a fire-fighting exercise.

5000 Euro for four organisations
Helping is the business purpose of rescue-tec. But the head of the fire brigade shop for aid organisations, crafts and companies not only helps with the right equipment in emergencies, but also supports institutions that do good for others.

The Leberecht Foundation of this newspaper and the Kinder- and Jugendhaus Funk in Runkel are once again among the beneficiaries, each receiving 1500 euros.
For the first time, the Limburg-Weilburg Palliative Network and the Anavena Hospice in Hadamar will each receive 1000 euros - and there will be an occasion for this. Hergenhahn experienced the good work of the people who accompany terminally ill people on their last journey until the death of his mother in March. "I usually deal with helpers in action and was impressed how quietly help is given there," said Hergenhahn.

Practical tip: Seriously injured forest worker under tree!
It is important to make Trainings varied and interesting. That's why here's another practical tip from us: RuthLee training dummy and wound simulation set.
In order to prepare such a training, a suitable place must first be found. Tip: Talk to your local forester, he will certainly be able to provide or point out a suitable spot with a fallen tree. To represent the forestry worker, it is best to use a Ruth Lee dummy, as it is very robust and stable.

The new equipment concept of the Ratingen fire brigade
After extensive internal consultations, the Ratingen fire brigade has decided to stop with the emergency rappelling with the standard fire brigade tagline. Instead, a light and compact search line is to be carried along. This decision made it necessary to redesign the tactical and technical requirements for additional equipment for attack troops.
rescue-tec as a partner for individual and innovative carrying solutions was involved in the project from the very beginning. A holster was required for the deployment scissors, a line bag for the search line and other equipment, as well as a holster for the fire escape hood. Among other things, the operability with fire brigade protective gloves was important. The fabric was to have the same properties as the fire protective clothing. An emergency release device was installed in order to free itself if it got stuck. This enables separation from the wearer at a tensile force of 250-300 N.
Already shortly after the inquiry with detailed description of the requirements rescue-tec was able to present the first holsters made of a sand-coloured Nomex fabric. During a discussion in the main fire brigade and rescue station on site, the prototypes were discussed extensively and further improvements were made. In addition, new additional furnishings for equipping the holsters were requested. This includes an aramid guide line made exclusively for rescue-tec in bright yellow with a braided, reflective tracer thread.
In September 2018 rescue-tec finally received the order to supply a total of 70 line bags with search line and snap hook, 30 holsters for fire escape hood and 70 holsters for deployment scissors.
The new seminar area at rescue-tec
The rescue-tec seminar area has also moved. Seminars and trainings will now take place at our location in Runkel-Ennerich, Oberau 4-8.

Labelled Holsters, Bags and Backpacks – Confusion impossible!
rescue-tec is known as a specialist for individual solutions. Many backpacks, holsters and bag models are now also available with personal labeling and it can be easily done online. For example, holsters can be clearly assigned to vehicles, squads, or persons. With a minimum purchase quantity of 25 pieces, it is even possible to apply logos and/or coats of arms.
"The demand for individual labeling is great. Especially when several backpacks or holsters are equipped with different types of materials on one vehicle, which brings great benefits in practice. There are also combinations with beautiful city or town coats of arms here, that makes the whole thing even more interesting."
Think Tank rescue-tec - When prototypes become operational
The demands on holsters and bags are as varied and individual as their wearers. In order to meet the special requirements of emergency services, rescue-tec has specialized in the production of individual solutions and has implemented countless special projects. Some ideas even make it to mass production.

Aviation Oxygen Systems Bag
The transport bag has been developed for emergency oxygen supply of flight personnel on cargo airplanes.
Life cargo, such as horses and pets are regularly checked and cared for by flight personnel. It is required to carry an oxygen supply and breathing mask to be able to quickly react to a sudden cabin depressurisation.
The problem is that, the 2 litre oxygen container and breathing mask are uneasy to carry and are often put down in order to free ones hands. This is not only dangerous as the apparatus might no longer be in close range but might also be exposed to mechanical impact from falling or bumping.

Effective training can cut the time it takes to rescue someone
Well planned water rescue training, completed with reasonable frequency is one of the best ways to prepare. There are many excellent water rescue training courses run in centres across the UK, but many teams also chose to complete their own training to keep the skills up-to-date. Using the skills you have gained on external courses as a basis, you can plan training at your own base to keep embedding these skills.
By completing regular training, you can be confident that both you and your teams will respond with the utmost efficiency which is obviously essential in water rescue scenarios. Time is of the essence when someone is struggling in water and therefore the more confident you and your team are the better.
Why training manikins are an essential part of your training equipment:

Thought-out Solutions for Practitioners
For more than 15 years rescue-tec has been the expert for bags, holsters and backpacks. Many products were developed in close cooperation with fire brigades according to their wishes and requests as individual custom-made products. A lot of customer ideas were so innovative that the bags have become part of the serial production like the new rope pouch Dorsten.
This rope bag can be fastened to nearly every breathing apparatus (for devices with 2 bottles only partially suitable). It is hooked with one hook to the top harness of the breathing air cylinder and fastened using a rubber band over the cylinder valve. The pouch can be unhooked in one quick movement (pulled upwards) and removed by the user. The rope can be fastened on the inside of the pouch with a karabiner. A secure connection is assured, if the rope is used to protect the way back. The opening on the bottom, which can be shut tight, prevents the line running out in an uncontrolled way. 30 m of rescue rope or up to 100 m guide rope fit in the bag. Because its fixation on the ba there is no annoying sliding or covering of other equipment and the hands are free.
With its three attached additional compartments the rope pouch Dorsten combines the two components, rope pouch and holster. With the different compartments in an offset arrangement a fast access to useful equipment like scissors Cologne, loops with karabiners, timber wedges or marking pens is possible even in low-zero visibility.

Extinguisher Carrying System
Fire! Help is needed quickly. It’s good to have an extinguisher ready to hand. Sometimes its further away or an additional device has to be fetched from somewhere else. Now rescue-tec offers a special carrying system fur 6 kg fire extinguisher. The hands can remain free especially in narrow passages and stairways in machine halls or warehouses.
The carrying system can also be used in office buildings or public facilities such as kindergartens or schools. In an emergency the extinguisher can be carried fast and easily over the shoulder. So its transport is considerably easier and more comfortable than before. That could be decisive in case of incipient fires. The carrying system is space saving and makes a faster reaction time possible.
The shoulder strap is fitted with a pad for more comfort. For more visibility the system has a wide reflective stripe and yellow buckles.
Safety stored equipment
As diverse as the tasks and the operational areas so is the equipment too. Therefore rescue-tec offers the multifunktional accessory bag. It is without compartments and so can be used in a number of different ways. With its compact size it is small enough to be worn comfortable at the belt but big enough for various equipment.
The accessory bag offers space for a small fire blanket or first-aid-material, for a hi-vis waistcoat, tools or special equipment. There is also space for documentation material for civil protection intervention and disposable gloves find a place in the separate front pocket. The convenient 2 way zipper can be also opened with gloves easily. The
padded back side provides additional comfort. The bag can be fixed onto narrow belts as well as wide belts.
Even for longer operations like forest fires or search and rescue operations the rescue-tec bottle bag is a good complement to the accessory bag. It is suitable for PET-bottles up to 1.5 l content. The bottom of the bag has a convenient mesh material for fast drying, preventing waterlogging.
Quick Response Bag now in two different Versions
The rescue-tec quick response bags „de Vries“ fill a gap in fire fighting tactics. They allow the emergency squad to operate fast, effectively and water-efficiently. With the combination of a special nozzle and the specific method for laying the hose the first extinguishing attack can be performed quickly and simply!
Rescue-tec, the experts for holster and bags, have developed two quick-response-bags made of tough Cordura. The proven bag “de Vries” for 25 mm hoses, length 30 m has been revised and optimized. And the new version Rotterdam is larger and has been built for a 42 mm hose, length 30 m.
Both bags’ advantages:
- hands are free, because the bag is carried over the shoulder
- they contain a 30m hose, which is inserted in a special way
- the hose runs easily
- flap at the bottom can be opened, thus the remaining hose falls out and can be laid out
Often a 25 mm or 42 mm hose is completely sufficient in case of apartment or vehicle fires to ensure an adequate water supply and a good fogging, provided the suitable nozzle is used. The bag attached on the outside can accommodate additional equipment, e.g. an adapter, hydrant wrench or more.
The rescue-tec quick response bags “de Vries” optimize your operations.
Water Rescue PPE
In flood situations, which are increasing, even small rivers and brooks have strong currents. Although they are not usually wide and in most places shallow, there is a danger to life. Pedestrians, playing children as well as canoeists often don’t have a chance. Such emergencies happen again and again.
The rescue-team’s personal safety should be priority. At rescue-tec.de you can find useful equipment for water rescue, e.g. the neoprene
suit “Rescue”. It was developed for fast water rescues. The suit is also suitable for frozen water rescues. It is highly durable with strengthening at knees, elbows, shinbone and backside. It is according to EN 14225-1. The suit can be put on quickly and there is a separate hood for more flexibility included.
Of course the head should be protected in a water rescue operation. Therefore rescue-tec.de offers the helmet “Predator Fullcut”. It protects temples, ears, forehead and skull against injuries. Openings at the ears improve hearing and make it easier to wear glasses and infiltrated water leaves the helmet more easily. Learn more about water rescue equipment at rescue-tec.de.
Optimized Helpers for Operation and Everyday Life
Feuerwehr Objektiv 02/2014
The holster Multipocket, the first in a row of rescue-tec holsters was revised and optimized . It has two identical compartments for a rescue knife, a multifuntional tool or a lamp and a webbing loop or a marker. Now one compartment has a red, clearly visible pull strap as standard equipment. With it tools or knifes always can be pulled out easily even with gloves.
Also the „small brother“ Multipocket, small is now available as optimized version with pull strap. It is only half the size and made for a knife, a multifunctional tool or a lamp. The gear is safely stowed and always ready to hand, because both pouches have a cover that is easy to open also with firefighter gloves. Thanks to the universal belt fixing the holsters can be worn at all common belts with 2–9 cm width.
Safely stowed equipment always at hand – that is possible with holsters and bags from rescue-tec.

The new, improved Scissors Cologne
The scissors Cologne have been improved and are now in a revised version available. With the new grinding it is sharper and cuts even better ropes, belts and much more – real multi-purpose sicissors.
Many fire services take especially in operations with BA rescue knives with them. The knives are useful, but they have the disadvantage, that if you want to cut, you mostly need both hands. A very good alternative are here the scissors Cologne, because you only need one hand for cutting. This is very important e.g. when you are in a dark room, full of smoke under BA and get caught. Then it is not always possible to use both hands. Now quick and easy help is needed – the scissors Cologne.
There are several holster to transport the handy scissors. One to fix them directly at the shoulder belt. Thus they are always ready to hand in arm height. With the other holster the scissors are fixed at the belt. In it it’s possible to transport more useful equipment. To protect the scissors against lost they have a key ring. At it a chain or a safety strap can be fixed. By the red handles the scissors cologne are good to see even in darkness.
The scissors have been a part of the fire brigade Colognes PPE since a fatal accident. Also more fire services in German cities use them meanwhile.
