Founded by Douglas E. Bird, in 1987 the Emergency Medical Consultants provided quality training until early in the 1990's. At that time the company was put on the back burner as other commitments became more pressing.
In 2014 the company was re-registered with the Province of Ontario.
As a leader in advanced first aid training, it continues to provide a variety of programs to the public, schools, industry, and fire departments.
In 1991, Mr. Bird crossed paths with Donald C. Edwards. They met when both men, qualified as paramedic instructors for the provincial emergency health services. Like Mr. Bird, Mr. Edwards came with a long history of academic achievement and experience in the Emergency Medical Service field.
