After a career in Canada’s military, training soldiers to stay safe during overseas missions, Dean Turner founded F.A.S.T. Rescue to share his passion of helping people by bringing his expertise to the civilian public. Since 1997, he has played a part in leading health & safety training initiatives, focused on everything from first aid to disaster management, for major organizations across Canada. He was a member of the Homelessness Initiative, Food Security Network, and Heart Health Initiative. Dean helped bring the Smart Risk Foundations Heros’ program, a program geared to educating our youth in taking safe risks, to the Region of York. He is still very active in the community as a volunteer for the Canadian Red Cross Safety and Disaster Service. Since his retirement from the military, Dean has been very successful at assembling a strong and dedicated team of professionals as instructors and product experts, selected for their technical expertise, ability to communicate, and compassion to educate others on healthy living and saving lives.
