Brandon is the owner of Tactical Rescue Services (TRS) and formed the company when he saw the need to present non-traditional types of instruction to Law Enforcement, Fire Rescue and Civilian fields.
“The idea behind TRS is to empower those who seek to learn to help themselves and others in times of crisis. This is accomplished through the cross training of emergency service professionals and introduction of core emergency skills to everyday people.”
