Technical Rescue Teams

Technical rescue team efficiency is a lifelong pursuit and is something that goes beyond a "division" within our company - this is our life. The dedication and the pursuit for absolute perfection of this craft is one of the founding principles of this company. 

Total Rescue is a Founding Member of the International Technical Rescue Association (ITRA) in Canada, and at this time we have the only Level 3 Assessor in the country.  We are also Premier members of the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT).  It is our goal - and our mandate - to be a key player in the technical rescue world.  We work closely with manufacturers and designers and strive to be at the forefront of new technology that becomes available for the industry.  The best of the best technical rescue teams are training with us on a monthly basis - and so should you.

Contact Us today about assessments, and custom courses to ensure your Rescue Teams are competent and ready.



We provide our customers with Specialized Teams of Highly Trained Rescue Technicians.    We can provide industrial confined space rescue teams, high angle rescue teams, standby firefighters and medics or any combination required.  We have a large selection of High Angle Rescue and Confined Space Entry equipment including air movers, gas detectors, and air trailers with breathing apparatus

We would be more than happy to come to your site and discuss your requirements, perform a worksite and equipment inspection and custom build a Response Team based on your worksite, your equipment, and your budget.
