Meet the PRO Team
The team that makes our ability to provide quality rescue services possible!
Scott Rieckmann has over 30 years of experience as a firefighter, and currently serves as Fire Chief and owner/lead instructor of P.R.O. He has spent the better part of his life immersed in what we call rescue—but what Scott would call a lifestyle. He is certified in nearly all disciplines of technical rescue, including flood/swiftwater, high and low ropes, confined space, ice, search and rescue, airboat operation, and grain engulfment. Scott is a WI State Fire Instructor, Officer, former SAR task force leader, and has been actively teaching technical rescue for over fifteen years. When he’s not serving at the department, teaching at the tech college, or working with Pioneer, Scott can usually be found outside – camping, biking, or relaxing by the campfire.
