Howe & Howe and Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service train first responders with Thermite® firefighting robot
Howe & Howe is collaborating with Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) to add new and emerging technologies to the training services TEEX offers.
Since 1929, TEEX has offered on-site and online training resources for more than 200,000 people per year in areas such as fire and rescue, infrastructure and safety, law enforcement, economic and workforce development and homeland security.
We are loaning TEEX a Thermite® RS1, which will allow first responders who come through their doors to train with a state-of-the-art firefighting robot that will provide valuable standoff distance to the firefighter and keep them safe.
During our initial visit to TEEX, our team demonstrated the many capabilities of the Thermite® RS1 and showed the TEEX team how first responders would utilize the firefighting robot in response to various emergencies.
Check out the video above to see our Thermite® RS1 in action during our visit.
