Get Ready Global CEO Scott Ashley

Scott Ashley  CCFP

President and CEO

Scott is the President and co-founder of Get Ready. Scott’s strong belief is to separate policies from procedures and truly “operationalize” these often complex, policy-based programs into response-ready capabilities.

He has over twelve years experience in EMS from his early years as a paramedic where he worked in Alberta, Los Angeles, Toronto and for eight years as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic on the Bandage One helicopter based in Toronto.

Since that time Scott has founded companies that focused on first aid training, emergency Management, BCP and Pandemic planning.

Scott developed pandemic plans for many Fortune 500 clients, professional services firms and medium size companies.

Get Ready provides custom cloud-based tools so organizations can easily access their information on desktop or mobile devices; this instant access and dashboard situational awareness has been an industry game changer.
