Gary Foo and Paul Sevcik doing Swiftwater Powerboating on the Ottawa River in Quebec. Circa 2008.
Technical Rescue Specialist Paul Sevcik started The Advanced Rescue Techniques school of Canada over 35 years ago as a division of Equinox Adventures. A highly successful and widely recognized authority for technical rescue in Canada. The majority of clients were the Fire Departments, Military, other emergency services and Health and Safety Organisations.
Police Officer and Tactical Medic Gary Foo was running The Police Charter almost 30 years ago which eventually morphed into "DIMERSAR" after the inclusion of Technical Rescue and International Safety and Security programs. The majority of the clients were Police and Tactical groups with medical and government departments in Canada, the US, South East Asia and the UK.
The two friends joined forces and operate under the name "Advanced Rescue by DIMERSAR" and they have selected highly qualified partners and specialists to augment the training, teaching and consulting teams.
The majority of clients come from Fire, Police, EMS / Paramedic services, the Military, Government Departments, Construction and Safety Companies, NGOs, The Motion Picture Industry and research and educational organisations.
