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.
