Dave Gillespie

Dave Gillespie

is a Firefighter with the Peterborough Fire Service in Canada since 1995. He has worked as Firefighter, Chief Training Officer, and Incident Safety Officer, and he is currently on the trucks.

From personal experience, Dave lived the extreme stress response and has seen first-hand “how people don’t rise to the occasion, they default to what they practice.”

That experience influenced his research and development of his training philosophy to help firefighters raise their performance, involving simulations, stress inoculation, heart rate monitoring, along with resiliency tactics.
