Ryan Gallik's early career as a Firefighter/Paramedic significantly impacted his life. After he attended the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland, he discovered his passion in saving the lives of those who selflessly serve others. Ryan's career path has led him to help not only those who call 911, but those that are part of the entire 911 experience including those who serve the first responders.
Award-winning international speaker and writer, Ryan's expertise on safety and overall wellness in emergency services is in demand by public and private organizations.
In 2016 he co-founded a Safety and Health Collaborative to provide education and training so we can minimize the risks of exposure and death to our Firefighters. This program is now crossing many States and impacting thousands of Firefighters, Fire Departments and the Fire Service as a whole.
Ryan has been recognized as State of Florida Fire Instructor of the Year (2016) and State of Florida Firefighter of the Year (2016), and has had the honor of serving as a family escort during National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend (2014, 2015).
