Shane’s passion for Paramedicine is palpable – he is an Advanced Care Paramedic and Operations Superintendent for Niagara EMS, has been a Paramedic Instructor with CPER for several years and a part time professor at Niagara College. Shane has also competed and won several Paramedic Simulation Competitions throughout the world and hopes to expand the role of simulation here at CPER. As a volunteer for GlobalMedic, he trained land mine clearance personnel in Cambodia and deployed to field hospitals in Haiti and Turkey following earthquakes. Shane is the current Director of Public Relations for the Niagara Paramedic Association and is a long-time volunteer with the Canadian Red Cross. He was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal for his exemplary contributions to Canada. He is looking forward to his new role as the Outreach Coordinator for CPER.
