The City of Commerce honored Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel from Fire Stations 22, 27 and 50 as part of a public safety recognition luncheon on Tuesday, July 7.
At the event, the Commerce City Council retroactively proclaimed June as Public Safety Month.
Both Fire Chief Daryl Osby and Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell spoke at the luncheon, which spotlighted the work of contracted public safety personnel, including firefighters and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies, as well as the city’s public safety employees. Chief Osby and McDonnell expressed their gratitude for the support and appreciation of the City of Commerce.
More than 100 people attended the luncheon, which was held at Stevens Steak and Seafood House. This was the first time in recent memory that the city has hosted a public safety recognition event.
