Scott is the President and co-founder of Get Ready Online Inc. He has over thirty years experience in emergency management, both from his early years as a paramedic, and later in business with the development and implementation of emergency management and business resilience programs.
Scott gained his expertise while working with various EMS services both in Canada and the USA. In particular, in Los Angeles County, Toronto EMS and through Sunnybrook Health Science Centre as the base hospital for the Air Ambulance Program where Scott served for eight years as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic on the Bandage One helicopter. Scott’s strong conceptual ability coupled with his comprehension of “systems” provides the ability to re-engineer and build integrated programs for the public and private sectors.
Scott says he has a sense of humor. However, there has been no evidence to support that claim.
