Martin Lesperance leads an energetic life as a
firefighter/paramedic, safety trainer, author and father.
A full-time firefighter/paramedic, Martin has been involved in emergency medical services for the past 17 years. Throughout this time, he has also designed safety programs for several major companies, specializing in first aid and
emergency care, and instructed in the Emergency Medical Technician program at the Southern Alberta Institute of
Technology. Martin owns Inter Provincial Safety Resources Ltd., a safety-training company that has trained
thousands of employees of large and small companies alike.
In 1995, drawing on his emergency treatment and safety training background, as well as many personal experiences in the
emergency medical services field, Martin authored and self-published "Kids for Keeps: Preventing Injuries to Children". Since
that time, his reputation as an expert in safety and injury prevention has grown, and he has appeared on numerous television and

Martin’s second book - "I Won’t Be In To Work Today: Preventing Injuries at Home and at Play" which focuses on practicing
workplace safety habits at home for a healthier, happier life style reached best seller status within three months of release. His latest
book is called "What do you Mean I’m Stressed - Recognizing and Managing Your Stress".
