Vale has been a professional Firefighter since 1994. Prior
to becoming a Professional Emergency Responder, Dan was a
Commercial Deep Sea Oilfield Diver, working in offshore oilfields
in various parts of the world. Due to the remote locations
involved in drilling for, & producing subsea oil, Deep
Sea Diving Contractors required some of their diving personnel
to be trained as Medics, and Dan ( a.k.a.“DeepSeaDan”
in those days! ) was trained as a Diver-Medic, as part of
his degree program in Underwater Technology at the Florida
Institute of Technology. Dan continues his love of diving
today as a Master Scuba Trainer for the Professional Association
of Diving Instructors.
In those years as a Diver-Medic, Dan developed a keen interest
in emergency medical treatment. Being newly-wed, with children
on the radar, Dan searched for a new and challenging career,
and found that Firefighting ( with it’s significant
role in assisting Paramedics with patient care ), was a perfect
fit! Dan started teaching First Aid & CPR courses for
the Red Cross Society, as well as Basic Trauma Life Support
training through the auspices of the International Trauma
Life Support agency. He also became one of the principal emergency
medical trainers for his employer – Peterborough Fire
Services. In addition to his private teaching, Dan is a Co-Teacher
of the Emergency Medical Responder portion of the Pre-Service
Firefighting program at Fleming College.
Dan is a firm believer
that learning should be…FUN! Dan has never
forgotten what it is to be a student, and works hard at providing
courses that are both informative and entertaining. He also
brings many years of professional emergency medical response
experience with him to the classroom, giving his teaching
a “real-world” perspective.
looking forward to sharing his considerable knowledge and
experience in emergency medical response with you!
