County Honors First Responders From La Cañada Flintridge Fire Rescue

This week, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger honored four deputies from the Crescenta Valley Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station and four firefighters from L.A. County Fire Stations 19 and 63 who responded to a serious house fire in La Cañada Flintridge last month and saved lives while facing extremely dangerous conditions.
These eight first responders responded to a dangerous residential fire that was in progress on Rancho Cañada Road in LCF on Jan. 30.
Within just two minutes of receiving the call at nearly 4 a.m., the Crescenta Valley sheriff’s deputies were first on the scene, rescuing a young man and a woman. They worked in lockstep with county firefighters who arrived moments later, facing heavy smoke and a massive house fire in progress.
“In the face of extreme danger, both teams responded with tenacity, bravery and strong collaboration,” Barger said.
Leaders from both L.A. County’s Fire and Sheriff’s departments have lauded the rescue as a prime example of how first responders should collaborate and respond to a life-threatening emergency.
“The Los Angeles County deputies and firefighters who responded that night all put their lives on the line as countless others do, every day,” Barger added.
Those recognized were Los Angeles County firefighter/paramedics Christian Schenk and Austin Jones, firefighter Justin Amparan, Fire Chief Anthony Marrone, CV Sheriff’s Station Capt. Robert Hahnlein, and sheriff’s deputies Andre Cornejo, Eduardo Olmos, Mitchell Laudano and Christopher Fort.
