Tempest Technology Ventilation Tools

Over three decades ago Tempest found its start in producing quality American made hot-air balloon inflators. Shortly after inception, we helped pioneer a new firefighting technique called positive pressure ventilation/attack or PPV/PPA. Our high-performance inflators were just what the fire industry was looking for to deploy this groundbreaking tactic. PPV became well known for its success along with Tempest’s reputation for being the first and only manufacturer with the perfect tool for the job at hand. In 2018 Tempest became part of the Leader Group family and is now able to offer a much more extensive range of products.


Tempest Technology has a full line of ventilation tools and firefighting equipment.  Below are some of their most populator items.  Visit Tempest technology Firefighting Equipment web site to see the full line of tools and equipment.

The fire industry is what started it all for Tempest and positive pressure ventilation/attack (PPV/PPA). Working alongside a number of innovative fire departments in California, we were involved in supplying the first ventilators used in the initial testing of PPV/PPA. Since that time, we’ve become well known as the leading supplier for quality, American made positive pressure ventilation fans used all over the world. We take tremendous pride in our origins and owe much, if not all of our success, to our wonderful firefighting customers.
