Andrew Burns
Founder and Principal

Andrew has spent the last five years serving the people of Ontario as a flight paramedic.  Andrew's career, education and hobbies have provided him with a unique blend of experiences, skills and qualifications. From mountaineering to sea kayaking to providing life saving interventions in the back of a pickup truck in minus 30 weather or in a plane at 30,000 feet, the common thread is the need to make good decisions and find solutions to problems with limited resources and high stakes.

With the constant need to trim budgets and do more with less Andrew saw the need to apply these skills to the logistic and operation aspects of healthcare and emergency services. This was his motivation for founding Rescue Associates Canada. His goal is to leverage his experience to assist others in planning for and responding to emergencies. 

Andrew is also currently completing a Bachelors of Emergency & Security Management.
