Petzl Technical Partner

Vector Rescue is proud to be recognized as a Petzl Technical Partner and we are the only rescue PTP in New England. A PTP is “a recognized expert company or individual in a vertical environment that demonstrates a thorough understanding of their respective industry, contributes to the development of best practices, and meaningfully integrates Petzl into their systems and curriculum.”

This designation allows us to deliver certain Petzl content, have priority access to training for our staff, and gives us direct access to Petzl technical resources. All of which combine to enhance the high quality training and equipment sales we provide for our clients.

Awesome training company. We’ve now had 2 classes with them and highly recommend. First class instructors!
- Michael F.
I have been fortunate in having taken two separate classes with Vector Rescue (Arborist Rescue and Arizona Vortex). The instructors were well versed in their craft and their methods of instruction were such that anyone could comprehend the lessons and perform the skills with confidence.
- Student
Great course and very knowledgeable and professional instructors. The course provided a great deal of hands on training that was extremely beneficial. Would highly recommend any future training opportunities w/ Vector Rescue.
- Student
Earlier this week I had the privilege to train with the team at Vector Rescue. I was able to ascend, descend, and perform a pick-off safely and efficiently as a single rescuer. In the modern fire service we are being asked to do more and more everyday with less manpower, and the training provided by Vector Rescue offered me the skills to answer that call!
- Jeff N.
This was hands down the best class I have ever been to. The instructors' positive attitudes as well as their ability to allow us as students to problem solve was amazing. The way the instructors presented material and coached us through the material and provided pointers, asked for our input, got to know our department SOPs, and asked us to share information between other students showed a dedication towards the craft and towards the art of teaching to each individual student. I cannot recommend Vector Rescue enough and look forward to taking more classes in the future.

Vector provided training that was customized to fit my departments needs. These guys were professional, engaging, and challenged us with new methods and ideas. We look forward to working with Vector Rescue again soon.
