Responder Training – It’s Who We Are

Responder Training Enterprises (RTE) started providing fire service training in the 80’s that included firefighter basics, fire investigations, tactical rope and Emergency Response to Propane Incidents, including Propane Flare operations. RTE is the only Indiana based company that’s provided a mobile Live Burn Propane course with classroom and practical evolutions for over 25 years. With 14 years in the propane industry and 30 in the fire service, the company’s owner has the response and service knowledge that’s practical and available to everyone that is willing to receive it. Most of our courses are deliverable wherever you need them. Since its inception Responder Training has continued to abide by its commitment to customer service and support.

And now we have added response tools to our offerings.

Responder Training’s Propane Flare

Aptly named, “THE PROPANE FLARE”, our flare is the first 1 inch commercially available propane flare intended for first responders and service agencies. The Responder propane flare has been created to move large volumes of propane using industry standard 1 3/4” ACME connections, 1” full flow hose, pipe and fittings. Using  full 1” components throughout, “THE PROPANE FLARE” can flow more that twice the capacity of others. “THE PROPANE FLARE” and the additional connection kit allows you to switch between an assortment of cylinders, tanks and piping systems with no tools required reducing time and the potential of leaks.

“Emergency Water Injection” kit

Our new “Emergency Water Injection” kit offers you an option that most have never even heard of. What if you could convert a liquid propane leak to water? Doing so reduces or eliminates the expanding vapor down to a safer level almost instantly allowing you to extricate trapped victims, find the leak or just manage it until the product can be burnt off. Propane weighs about half the weight of water, and like oil propane will float under the right circumstances. Click on SHOP and check out the “Emergency Water Injection” kit and give us a call if you have additional questions.
