Learn more about preparing for an emergency from South County Fire presenters Shawneri Guzman, community outreach manager, and Megan LeBlanc, fire and life safety specialist.

For more than 25 years, Guzman has dedicated her career to prevention initiatives. She spent most of her early career as a trauma data analyst and injury prevention specialist at Providence Hospital, a level II trauma center. In 2017, Guzman left health care and pursued a job at South County Fire, a regional fire authority. This move allowed her to spend more time on prevention and outreach.

LeBlanc specializes in child safety topics for South County Fire and has spent the last eight years working in public service. She is a certified car seat technician and focuses on home fire safety presentations in schools, injury prevention and education, and community outreach initiatives.

  1. Seems my ideas of being prepared for a emergency differ at least it seems. Certainly there are the every day concerns a car accident or a house fire or a temporary power outage. How are we to survive a week a month? Or heaven forbid longer we are so unprepared. But by all means make sure your fire alarm battery is fresh.
