On Saturday, April 28, 2018, nearly 2,5000 people attended the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s (LACoFD) East Regional Operations Bureau 2018 Fire Service Day festivities and partnering event, the La Puente Kiwanis Annual Car Show, in the city of La Puente. The day provided an opportunity for the community to see numerous LACoFD apparatus and collector automobiles on display, meet local first responders, enjoy specialty vendors, and a chili cook-off.
LACoFD Battalion 12 personnel performed a “Jaws of Life” demonstration for the crowd and Fire Captain and Canine Search Coordinator Emmanuel Sampang brought his canine partner Eva to show-off their search and rescue skills.
Members of the La Puente Kiwanis Club were thrilled to have LACoFD as part of the day’s celebration and hope to continue the partnership.
The East Regional Operations Bureau and Division 8 would like to express their appreciation to personnel who came out to help spread a little hometown attentiveness in the city of La Puente. The day was a great success!
