My Name is Alex Millar and this will be my first season as a firefighter with the ORPST.
I'm 29 and currently live in Guelph.
I am in the early stages of my pursuit of a career firefighter position, and graduated from the Ontario Fire Academy in December of 2015.
Before beginning my career change, I worked in the Outdoor Recreation and Education fields for more then 10 years. I did my professional development with Outward Bound Costa Rica. It was during that course that I decided I wanted to be a firefighter; it was during this course that I was introduced to technical rescue (Swift water rescue, technical rope rescue, and Wilderness First Responder). .
I have worked as an Outdoor Educator with children and adults with special needs, guided canoe trips for private colleges, worked as a rock climbing instructor, and managed summer camp programs, to name a few of the jobs I've had.
As for my interest in being a member of the ORPST, I have always had a love of motor sports and cars. I have had a few project cars in the past and still plan to build an auto-x/hobby rally car in the near future. I also have an enduro motorcycle and love to ride as often as possible.
I am very excited to get involved this summer and look forward to meeting as many of you as I can.
