Zac Cain

Special Projects Manager

Meet our newest Roco team member – Zac Cain. While Zac has trained and worked with Roco since 2008, he literally just started his full-time career with Roco Rescue in September 2021. Recently retired from the U.S. Navy, Zac brings more than 28 years of truly unique military experience to Roco’s Tactical Program. This includes many years spent at Naval Special Warfare Development Group in Virginia Beach, VA, where he served as EOD Squadron Advanced Training Master Chief.

As Special Projects Manager and Chief Instructor for Roco’s Tactical Division, Zac will be instructing various military and law enforcement units in rope access and combat egress, container access, confined space, structural collapse, and high-angle search and recovery techniques for tactical environments be it maritime, urban, or mountain. During his past experience with Roco, he has helped shape container access and heavy lift techniques for military and law enforcement EOD teams.

Even though he’s new to our team but a long-time customer, we asked Zac about his thoughts on Roco’s mission. He replied, “Roco’s mission is in its name, Rescue – preparing and training people for rescue operations, and conducting search and rescue.” When asked about the most rewarding part of his new job with Roco, he stated, “While I’ve yet to discover that, I suspect it will be working with rescuers from across the nation, including America’s elite military and law enforcement, giving them tools and techniques to save lives.”

As a combat veteran, Zac made multiple deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq, and other conflict zones. He leveraged his combat experience to prepare EOD, SEAL, and SWCC Operators to effectively operate in diverse environments laden with IEDs, explosive ordnance, and CBRNE hazards. Zac has trained personnel in EOD tactics from every branch of the U.S. military, nine foreign partner military units, and a multitude of law enforcement units. During this time, Zac also completed a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Military Leadership.

In proud service to his country, Zac received numerous awards for combat service in both Afghanistan and Iraq to include: Silver Star Medal, Bronze Star Medal with V (2), Distinguished Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal with V, and Combat Action Ribbon (2).

After travelling and residing in different places around the world, Zac has recently returned to the Pacific Northwest. He lives in Bellingham, WA, only 78 miles from where he grew up. He is an avid skier and is an adjunct mountain warfare instructor for Snowbird Ski Resort’s Military Program. Zac and his family enjoy time in the mountains skiing, hiking, and climbing. He and his wife, Krista, are the proud parents of two teenage boys and two German Shepherds. Zac also owns a vintage Ford Bronco that he is currently restoring.

We welcome Zac to Roco and thank him for his contributions to the safety of our nation and our military personnel.
