Memorial Signs for LACoFD Fallen Firefighters on Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) near Lancaster

Mission Hills Sign Crew installs memorial sign.
Yesterday, a Caltrans Sign Crew from the Mission Hills Maintenance Station installed memorial signs on the northbound and southbound Antelope Valley Freeway (SR-14) for two of the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s fallen firefighters, Captain Ted Hall and Engineer Arnie Quinones.  

Hall and Quinones were killed in line of duty while battling the Station Fire in August 2009 in the Angeles National Forest.  The Station Fire was the largest fire in LA County history.

This sign was originally requested by Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, and the California State Legislature has designated the SR-14/SR-138 Interchange as the Los Angeles County Fire Captain Ted Hall & Engineer Arnie Quinones Memorial Interchange.
