Local leaders dedicated the interchange of California Highway 14 and Angeles Forest Highway on Wednesday as the “Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Ted Hall and Engineer Arnie Quinones Memorial Interchange” in honor of the firefighters who died during the 2009 Station Fire.
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich joined Los Angeles County Fire Department Chief Daryl Osby, former Chief P. Michael Freeman and Assemblyman Steve Knight for the dedication.
“Captain Ted Hall and Engineer Arnie Quinones exemplified the ideals of commitment, service, and bravery within the ranks of the Los Angeles County’s Fire Department,” said Antonovich, who represents the San Gabriel, Santa Clarita, Pomona and San Fernando valleys.
“Memorializing their ultimate sacrifice in a permanent commemoration of these two brave men will remind those travelling this highway the price these men paid in protecting their fellow fire fighters and our community,” Antonovich said.
