At the Rydge
When disruptive forces in the Earth cause tectonic plates to collide; mountain ridges are formed. This disruption creates vantage points from which we can see new opportunities on the horizon. At Rydge, we use these vantage points to navigate us to innovations for the first responder.
We are technology professionals who work together, and volunteer firefighters who serve together. When software, networking, communications, and robotics are joined with experience in emergency services, disruption occurs.
