Welcome!  I am Tom Niehoff, the founder of Rescue Spark.  This business isn't some large organization with people sprinkled across the globe, and I didn't want the About page to portray that.  Rescue Spark is a small business, run by myself, my wife, and a couple close friends.  While attending Missouri State University, I became interested in firefighting.  The next four years was spent studying software development during the day and being an active volunteer around the clock.

During that time, the idea for Rescue Spark was born.  The idea churned as I went on to work in the software development industry for years, but my passion for the fire service and desire to mesh those two experiences never went away... and as technology progressed so did the ideas I had for this software and industry.  Fast forward to 2018 and I am proud to use my past experiences in the fire service and years of enterprise software development to finally offer Rescue Spark to departments.

We are based out of St. Louis, Missouri and are proud to offer our product to departments across the country and beyond.  If you are looking for a more intuitive application and a small company filled with individuals who are deeply dedicated to the product and helping you succeed using the application, then you have come to the right place.
