Boozhoo, Ogiidaanokwaad indiizhinikaaz, Manidoo Bawiitogong niindonji.
Hello, my name is Shawn Brown, I am a band member from Rainy River First Nations, AKA Manitou Rapids. I have accepted employment with AKRC with a starting date of Sept 19th and I am excited for this new chapter, I am the new Fire prevention officer and mental health addictions worker.
I have been a part of the emergency services in my community for the past 25 years as a firefighter and fire chief for 8 years as well as a first responder and first response coordinator for many years I Also worked as a medic in Minnesota. I would like to engage with all the communities to guide them in fire prevention and protection and hopefully get some youth excited to join the emergency services for their communities. Being involved in fire protection for your community will give you pride and enjoyment knowing you will be there when your community needs you.
I have also been working for the addictions department for RRFN for the past 8 years and have been involved in many new ventures like the new RRFN Transition home and a lot of different types of training. I am excited to engage with all the communities I will be serving and hopefully will get to meet a lot of people. I would love the chance to gain better knowledge of your communities and provide them with the services that are required within my program for AKRC.
Looking forward to meeting everyone,
Shawn Brown NREMT
Fire Prevention Officer / Mental Health and Addictions Worker
