Sheriff’s helpers get recognition

May 01, 2010

Last year significantly tested the deputies and volunteers of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station, said Capt. Dave Silversparre, Crescenta Valley Station Commander.

Two major accidents at Foothill Boulevard and Angeles Crest Highway, the Station fire and the resulting mudslides were events that “shook the community to its core,” Silversparre said.

The event was April 21 at the annual Crescenta Valley Volunteer and Reserve Recognition Dinner at the La Cañada Thursday Club headquarters in La Cañada. Awards recognized explorers, volunteers and Montrose Search and Rescue workers.

Kevin Hughes was named the Montrose Search and Rescue volunteer of the year.
