Last night an our annual @lasdhq Reserve Forces Dinner, longest serving female Malibu Search and Rescue team member Rocky Morton, and full-time Sergeant Tui Wright and Deputy Kevin Augarten received awards from Los Angeles County Sheriff‘s Department for their service. Rocky received the lifetime achievement award For her 28 years of incredible service. Tui and Kevin collectively received the reserve coordinator of the year award, echoing the sentiments of the California Reserve Peace Officers Association which awarded them the same award in Sacramento California earlier this year.  These extremely dedicated individuals are more than deserving of these awards and recognition we appreciate all of their efforts and dedication to the community.#firstresponders #searchandrescue #savinglives #teamwork #malibustrong #malibusarstrong

A huge problem in these brush fires are trees that erupt and then send hot embers, sometimes miles away. While fighting fires is not our mission, we have to jump in and do whatever it takes to save lives and property. Pictured here is a team member fighting palm tree fires at a home.  #malibusar team members put out many tree fires this past week. #woolseyfire #firstresponders #searchandrescue #savinglives #teamwork @lasdhq @lasdrecruitment @mplasd

Our job doesn’t end at evacuations and medical care, we picked up shovels and did whatever we could to put out spot fires and hot spots. #malibustrong #malibusarstrong #searchandrescue #savinglives #teamwork #woolseyfire @lasdhq @lasdrecruitment @lacofireairops @lacountyfd @lasdhq @lasdrecruitment

We were able to check in on some of our four legged friends that were evacuated from #malibu #woolseyfire.  These are the famous @minitherapyhorses that are used for a variety of therapy for adults and children alike.  Oh that face...makes you just wanna give it a kiss (which we did). They are all doing great.  #firstresponders #searchandrescue #savinglives #teamwork @lasdhq @lasdrecruitment @mplasd

Sometimes during the stress of evacuations in the #woolseyfire, a resident invites you in. It’s important that we consider the trauma that those we are evacuating are under and spend that extra few seconds to calm them as we tell them to pack up whatever belongings they can squeeze into their cars, not knowing whether they will come back to their life or to devastation.  #firstresponders #searchandrescue #savinglives #teamwork @lasdhq @lasdrecruitment.  @deborah_lynne_

@lasdlan Great job @malibusar! We are sending all our prayers (and a few of our deputies) your way!

This was the moment in The Oaks of Calabasas when we thought we would lose dozens of homes.  Within 30 seconds of shooting this a DC10 dropped a huge trail of retardant and wiped out virtually all of the fire you see, saving all of these homes. See Friday’s post for the air drop. #firstresponders #searchandrescue #santamonicamountains #savinglives #teamwork @lasdhq @lasdrecruitment @mplasd

Hop in our rescue truck with us and you can almost feel the heat, taste the smoke and burn your eyes as we race onto the closed 101 freeway to reach Calabasas to start immediate mandatory evacuations Friday morning.
