Flashpoint Fire Equipment, Inc.
We are an engineering and product development company founded to use fire science and research to improve firefighting tools and tactics. Modern fuels, lightweight building construction and more air-tight buildings have changed how fast fires grow, flashover and respond to traditional tactics. Our mission is to support the evolution of firefighting tactics with training and through delivering purpose-built tools.
Founded with a Purpose
Todd and Ryan have crossed paths on committees and have co-taught at fire conferences over the years. Presently both serve on NFPA 1700, the guide for structural fire-fighting and have been tasked with writing a guide to improve strategy, tactics, and tasks as supported by science-based research. Through their common belief that continued learning and studies are indispensable for advancing firefighter and civilian safety on a daily basis, they founded Flashpoint, an equipment company that aims to bridge the gap between evidence-based research and practical application for the everyday firefighter.
