Shaunna White

White could easily be Wonder Women. She is a full-time student, works full-time as a Cannon Beach Life Guard, and she's also a Wildland Firefighter for Inbound, LLC.

She attended Clatsop Community College for her Associate degree in Fire Science. She is now considering classes to become a paramedic.

White missed the comradery of the Marine Corps and the sense of being a part of something bigger, so shortly after her return, she joined the department. She believes that in a sense the military and the fire department aren't too different, they're both very challenging and the skills learned help people succeed in life.

She is one of the three members of the water rescue team and has now been with the department for three years. Although there is no official certification, White is a chainsaw specialist. She is often one of the firefighters with the most response hours as well.

Her favorite movie is Batman & Robin and her favorite book is Armor by John Steakley. If she can find a minute to herself, White spends it at the gym as she would say "getting swole."

Fire Certifications: FF2, Driver, AO-Pump Operator, Wildland Firefighter 2, Hazardous-Materials Awareness Operations, Company Inspector, Fire Instructor 1, Fire Officer 1.
