background & bio

Wade's Experience

Wade's love of sport and physical activity flourished to the point that he pursued an Honours degree in Kinesiology and Health Science.

After University, Wade continued to educate himself, obtaining certifications to work as a Pedorthic Technician as well as a Pedorthic Clinician, quickly finding himself treating patients and managing a successful multidisciplinary lower extremity orthopaedic clinic.

However, firefighting was always in the back of his mind as a way to challenge himself physically and mentally while also providing a way to give back to his community.

Throughout his firefighting career Wade has been certified to instruct in a variety of disciplines such as High Angle Rope Rescue, Slope Rescue, Ice/Water Rescue and Incident Command. As a Captain of an Urban Fire Department with 17 years of experience, Wade is responsible for the life and safety of his crew members in a variety of situations and thrives on his ability to lead them, motivate them and have them execute in a safe, cohesive and efficient manner at all times.
