RescueGear.com came about very organically as a natural extension of Tom’s Dive and Swim. As an established family-owned dive shop in the Austin area since 1982, the City of Austin Fire and EMS Special Operations group approached us several years ago about providing some swift water dry suits. Up to that point we had been providing wetsuits and miscellaneous other underwater crime scene equipment. As their teams needs expanded so did our expertise.
Our Motto has always been that if we don’t have it, we can get it. With that mindset and our commitment to exceptional customer service we began forging relationships with some of the largest manufacturers of rescue equipment in the industry. Based on our buying volume our pricing has quickly become nationally competitive. We have since grown to work with state, national, and federal rescue groups of all types. Our goal has always been to treat all of our customers as an extension of our family, and to be a one stop shop for all things rescue.
If you don’t see what you’re looking for on the site let us know, we would love the opportunity to provide you or your team with all of your rescue needs.
