About our Instructors
David Boucher, a professional firefighter with the Central York Fire Service for 16 years and current Acting Captain, has spent years developing his skills not only as a CISM instructor, but as a leader. Starting his career with the Canadian Forces in the combat arms, his drive and skills led him to the Special Forces, sending him on numerous overseas tours.
Following this, David pursued a career in firefighting, first working with the Canadian Forces and then with Central York Fire Services. He quickly brought his special set of skills and leadership abilities to good use there, becoming a Shift training instructor for both rope rescue and ice water rescue, as well as a peer fitness trainer.
