lnws-fftruck-102909Los Angeles County firefighters are working to keep alive the memory of two colleagues killed during the Station fire.

Trucks serving the La Cañada Flintridge area, such as this one from Station #19 on Foothill Boulevard, have been inscribed with a memorial message that reads “In memory of our fallen brothers Capt. Ted Hall and FFS. Arnie Quinones, August 30, 2009, You will never be forgotten.”

Hall and Quinones had both worked at Station #19 before being transferred to an inmate camp which they later died trying to defend.
