#56 - Color Guard for Las Positas College Fire Service Technology
1st Place - Color Guard Senior
Grand Sweepstakes Award

 

 
Now, we have the award winning Las Positas College Fire Service Technology honor Guard.
The Las Positas College Fire Service and EMS Technology Training program is a complete vocational training program whose motto is "Train Tomorrows Heroes Today".
This Las Positas College-based program has been training; professional-career and volunteer firefighters, along with EMT/Paramedics in the Tri-Valley for the past 38 years. Hundreds of Las Positas Fire Service graduates are serving our nation in communities across America.
The Las Positas College Honor Guard will now present the Colors.

Behind the color guard are the 32 members of the 23rd Las Positas College Wild-land Firefighter Academy.
This program provides students with direct career opportunities with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, and with Cal Fire as seasonal and full-time Wild land Firefighters.

Following the academy students, we have some of our Paramedic Students from the Las Positas College Paramedic program.
This is a comprehensive and challenging 2000 hour program with 800 hours of clinical and field internships needed for licensure.

The first apparatus before you is the Las Positas College 85 foot Ladder Tower Fire Truck. Riding in the truck's basket is Dr. Kevin Walters, President of Las Positas College, and Dr. Judy E. Walters, Interim Chancellor of the Chabot Las Positas College District.

Next is the Las Positas College Type 1 Fire Engine designed for all risk emergencies and structure firefighting.

The next two engines consist of a Type II and a Type III Fire engine predominately designed for Wild land Firefighting.

Now we have the Light Rescue Ambulance, which serves as a component of the Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic Training programs. The Emergency Medical Technician Training Program and Paramedic Training Program is ranked as one of the strongest programs in California.

Our last vehicle is the Command Vehicle, driven by Ron Johansen, the Director of the Fire and EMS Technology programs for Las Positas College.
All of these students are highly motivated, dedicated and professional, and we are proud to call them our "Heroes of the Future".
The students are grateful for the opportunity to be in today's parade.

We are proud to present the East Avenue Middle School Dolphin Band!

The students wish to thank their parents and the community at large for being so supportive in keeping music alive in the schools. Thanks to their tireless efforts, the East Avenue program is healthy, thriving, and growing.
East Avenue Middle School was recently named a California Distinguished School, the only school in the district to win such an honor, and the only school to have won the honor three times, including back-to-back in 2009 and 2013!
