We’ll take you to a fire station where Shawn meets the county’s fire chief. He learned that being on the administrative side of the department is quite different from that of a fire fighter.

Plus, he will talk with a public interest attorney who finds her passion in being a voice for the underserved and ensuring they have access to healthcare.
