#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.

In 1926, Temple Station was established as Station Number 5. Temple Station has had at least 4 different locations over the years, but it has been at its current site since 1957.

To date, Temple Station has lost two of its Deputies:

The first to give his life in the service of the Temple Station Community was Deputy Harold S. Blevins, who was murdered on October 12,1957. He was responding to a robbery in progress call where he was fatally shot by a career criminal and recent parolee.

The second and hopefully the last was Deputy David W. March in 2002. He too was shot by a career criminal, who fled the country to escape prosecution.

After remaining in hiding in Mexico for several years. He was eventually extradited and subsequently plead guilty, and is now serving his sentence in a California prison.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department immortalized Deputy David W. March’s words and adopted them as our department creed.

“My goals are simple, I will always be painfully honest, work as hard as I can, learn as much as I can and hopefully make a difference in people’s lives.”

Deputy David W. March EOW April 29, 2002
