The conference will host a variety of speakers with extensive experience in PTSD and firefighting including:

  • Edmonton Fire Rescue Services Fire Chief Ken Block.  Edmonton has included PTSD in presumptive legislation for occupational illness for firefighters.

  • Former Police Officer and Cross of Valor recipient Allan Sparkes
  • Former ETU State Secretary Dean Mighell, Founder and Director of The Path of the Horse charity
