The program, presented by Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dep. Dan Paige and AHS member William Dawson, will be free and open to the public at the Altadena Community Center, 730 E. Altadena Drive.
Founded in 1951, the rescue team is comprised of citizen volunteers and is based at the Altadena Sheriff’s station, one of eight such Sheriff’s Department rescue teams in the county.
“Bill Dawson and Dep. Dan Paige have searched the archives and files of the Sheriff’s Department and the Historical Society to produce this fascinating, illustrated program,” said Historical Society President Kathy Hoskins.
The talk will be illustrated with both still photos and video, and rescue equipment will be on display as well as the team’s equipment truck.
The Historical Society’s current exhibit, “Fifty Famous Altadenans,” in the Community Center lobby and the society’s adjoining archives, will be open prior to the program.
