Rescue Task Force (RSQ) is a Veteran-owned consulting group comprised of subject matter experts that blend High Threat Protection doctrine with limited resource trauma management.


RSQ program managers have global experience in crisis management, giving them the unique ability to analyze effectiveness, mitigate risk, and maximize efficiency through operational simplification. 


RSQ is registered with the Central Contractor Registry (CCR) as a United States Government training provider.


Our Mobile Training Teams teach Rescue Task Force programs throughout the US, helping Fire, Police, and EMS agencies develop counterterrorism and Active Threat Management response programs to better protect their communities.


Global Response Services manage and deploy assets internationally to assist with disaster response and risk mitigation.



RSQ instructors are subject matter experts in their respective fields. Senior Tactical Instructors have multiple deployments overseas conducting military, counterterrorism, and/or high threat protection operations in non-permissive environments. Senior Medical Instructors are Certified Tactical Paramedics (TP-C).


They each bring a knowledge base to the program that enables them to instruct as subject matter experts with relevant operational experience. Assistant Instructors are experienced professionals from Federal, State and Local Law Enforcement, EMS, and/or Fire departments. They demonstrate progressive involvement in their departments and excel in their respective fields.
