On Scene Reviews: Res-Q-Rench

-Our blog, On Scene with TheFireStore & The FireGeezer Blog are working together doing a review program of products we think you'll benefit from hearing an inside perspective. -

I recently had the opportunity to use the Res-Q-Rench for this review. I previously had this tool in my PPE and used it often for different applications. The different uses for this tool make it very versatile while still maintaining a sleek and compact design to fit in my gear.

The tools light weight is an added benefit, it's like having multiple tools but only taking up space for one.

I distinctly remember using it on auto accidents, with the window punch and the prying tool to remove trim from the interior of the vehicles. It also has a seatbelt cutter blade in it.

It's also nice to have as a driver-operator because while keeping it in my pocket I was able to tighten couplings on hose lines while not having to carry the bulky metal wrenches.

When I was done with the tool I simply folded it up and placed it back in my pocket under my fire gloves. I would definitely recommend this tool to any firefighter that wants to be ready for any task.

Many members of our department have this tool. You guys couldn't have described it better. It's small size and number of situations it can be used for make it a wonderful tool to own.
