South Los Angeles Sheriffs Station

#ThrowbackThursday #LASD The Search and Rescue teams function as the Sheriff’s Department’s official emergency response unit. The unit provides services to those citizens who become stranded, lost, or injured in the mountainous areas of Los Angeles County.

There are eight individual teams: Altadena Mountain Rescue Team, Sierra Madre Search and Rescue Team, Antelope Valley Search and Rescue, Malibu Search and Rescue Team, Santa Clarita Valley Search and Rescue Team, Montrose Search and Rescue, San Dimas Mountain Rescue Team and Avalon Search and Rescue Team.

Most of the team members are Los Angeles County Sheriff Reserve Deputies, while others are dedicated volunteers from the local communities to assist in search and rescue operations. All teams are under the direction of the local Sheriff’s Stations.

Because team members would go into steep and treacherous terrain, possibly at night or in the rain, it is imperative that all members are well trained. In addition to academy training, Search and Rescue Team members undergo extensive mountaineering training. Also, they must hold a current Emergency Medical Technician license and usually must live within a fifteen or twenty minute response time of the station where they serve.

Each team member is selected for his or her physical capabilities, maturity, and willingness to respond at a moment’s notice in emergency search and rescue situations. The men and women of the team are highly trained in technical rope rescue, swift water, snow and ice operations search theory and tracking.

As a part of the state of California mutual aid system, the teams also provides support search and rescue efforts throughout California and the United States.

They are ready to respond to emergency 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, to “anywhere in the wilderness that someone needs help”!

#FraudFriday

Late summer and early fall are typically the most popular time to get married. It is one of the happiest times in a person’s life. Unfortunately, there are thieves ready to steal your wedding bliss.
The happy couple look out for the following possible scams: Fraudulent websites selling wedding dresses, unreliable wedding planners, or no-show vendors.

How these types of scams works:

1. Dress Shopping
• A wedding dress less than $200.00 should trigger a suspicion
• Most of the fraudulent sites for dress shopping are based in another country.
• Always be suspicious if you can’t spot a “terms and conditions” in the sales deal or agreement. That means you’ll have little to no leverage in getting a refund, especially if the seller is located outside of the US.

2. Wedding Planner
• May advertise on Craigslist or social media with no references.
• Demands money upfront, usually cash.
• Will provide only a telephone number and no other means of communication.

3. No-Show Vendors
• You hire photographers, transportation, and videographers because they offered a great deal, only to find out the day of the wedding they don’t show up
• These scammers will prey on the inexperience, lack of knowledgeable in wedding planning and couples on a time crunch.
• They will ask for a hefty deposit promising you they will show up on your special day with all the bells and whistles, but never show.

Things to look for to avoid being a victim of these scams:
• Ask for references
• Search the internet for reviews of their services
• Check Better Business Bureau website
• Ask for a signed contract
• Pay with credit card or check, not cash
• Arrange to meet at their business location and review their business website to verify if they are legitimate.
• Scrutinize every document, vet every “pro” and generally proceed with the wedding planning with caution.

Recently refurbished, the Audrey and Sydney Irmas
Youth Activity Center houses the South Los Angeles
Sheriff’s Station Youth Activity League, a venue that
offers to local children organized sports activities,
tutoring, and an opportunity to interact with responsible
adults in a safe and secure environment. The Sheriff’s
Department currently operates ten Youth Activity
Leagues throughout the County.
Established in 1971, the leagues provide thousands of
youngsters with organized activities such as boxing,
aerobics, karate, weight training, tutoring, scouting, and
summer employment. All of the programs are tied to
education. To participate, each child must strive to
maintain a “C” average minimum or be involved in the
league’s tutoring program.

Operated under the auspices of the Sheriff’s Youth
Foundation, and funded by grants and charitable
donations, the programs espouse multi-culturalism
without economic boundaries. Each child receives
lessons on self-esteem, peer pressure, empowerment,
social values, and other areas of self-enrichment.
