Our Story

Elder Technical Rescue Services LLC was founded in 2017 by Bill Elder to offer training and consulting services for emergency responders focused on performing safe rescue operations. Over the years, our services have expanded to include preventing workplace accidents as well.

Our goal is make sure your employees stay safe and never need to rely on professional rescuers coming to their aid. When professional rescuers are needed, however, we want them to be well-rounded and highly skilled in critical thinking and patient-focused rescue techniques. We accomplish this by providing high-quality safety and rescue training and rescue standby teams.


Elder Technical Rescue Services LLC offers courses accredited by the following organizations:

  • American Safety and Health Institute
  • National Association of Safety Professionals
  • Pennsylvania Department of Health Bureau of EMS
  • Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission
  • Pennsylvania State Fire Academy

We always reference applicable national standards (i.e., NFPA, ANSI, OSHA, etc.) when designing our courses and guiding you on how to safely deliver high-quality rescue services.
