Shaughn Maxwell, firefighter/paramedic/educator

Shaughn Maxwell is a nationally recognized firefighter/paramedic/educator with Snohomish County Fire District One in Washington State. On Saturday morning March 22, 2014, he started his day like many others. That all changed as the calls started coming in for a major mudslide that engulfed an entire neighborhood.

Disaster Podcast hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley were joined by frequent guest Dr. Joe Holley from Tennessee Task Force One USAR team as they interviewed Shaughn about his area’s response to the disaster that struck their community. Shaughn talks about the ways local, county, state and federal resources worked together to solve seemingly insurmountable challenges facing rescuers.

Make sure you catch next week’s episode with part 2 of this riveting interview with Shaughn.
