Welcome to the new website!!!
We now offer more types of training as well as an online store for purchasing not only genuine RPI products, but products that we highly endorse and use.
Rescue Products International, Inc. (RPI) was formed in 2006 after the Black Sunday Tragedy which occurred in the Bronx, NY. Being a fireman in the FDNY at that time, President/CEO Christopher Botti felt that an event like this could be prevented in the future. At that time Chris started to develop an escape system and unique escape anchor hook, both variations of what is available today. Over time Chris and the staff of RPI have worked to refine the original escape system, as well as introduce additional new products to the fire service. Many of the production staff and training staff are full-time firefighters throughout the NYC Tri-State area, many of which have worked in some of the busiest fire companies in the world and have responded to thousands of runs in their careers. The RPI staff is comprised of active and retired members of the FDNY, FDNY Special Operations Command, NY TF-1 FEMA USAR Task Force, NJ TF-1 USAR Task Force, NJ State Police, and other career fire departments.
RPI believes in keeping their products simple, light weight, and most importantly something that we would want to use on the fire ground and in the technical rescue world.
