La Verne Fire Department
Spark of Love Update!! 2020 has been a very difficult year for a lot of people, but it is during this time that we get to see the true meaning of the Holiday Spirit. This year, the La Verne Fire Department had to compete with COVID-19 and the restrictions of how we were able to receive toy donations. Unlike in the past, we were not able to accept toy donations at the fire stations. Instead, toys had to be pre-ordered through Target and sent directly to the fire station. We knew that this would be a challenge, but this didn’t stop our wonderful community from showing their generosity. We received over 175 toys and almost $900 dollars in gift cards and monetary donations. Spark of Love might have had a different “look” this year, but it didn’t stop the LFVD tradition of bringing smiles to 130 children’s faces with the distribution of toys and gifts to children and families in need. The LVFD would like personally thank everyone who donated toys and gifts during this unprecedented and challenging time. It is because of you, the 2020 Spark of Love was a huge success!*Monetary & Gift card donations:Genovese FamilyCarol MarshallBarbara AndersonMoore familyDaniell Domenica MaurizioPatricia RadamakerJaynelle HerbertPete & Diane TempleHernandez FamilyWilliams family*Toy Donations:Liu  FamilyKaren DudicsXi ChenEvelyn AmimotoSybil WilderHeather HambyCatherine BacusHeather Fisher SargentFreddie DarnellDeanAmanda BustosJudy JacksonKathy DudleyMichelle RomeroKathy & Jason HamblinLeon FamilyOlgaKim ...

Mike Shaw Pride of La Verne Award - Each year in December, an employee from the Fire Department is recognized as the recipient of the Mike Shaw Pride of La Verne Award. This is awarded for excellence and exemplary service to the organization and the community. The employee chosen this year is Deputy Fire Marshal Jessica Estrella. This selection was based on her numerous accomplishments, her leadership traits, and for her distinguished service to the City of La Verne. She serves as our Deputy Fire Marshal, who oversees the daily responsibilities of our fire prevention division. In addition to serving in her current role, she has willingly taken on additional responsibilities which include managing the fire department’s social media programs, serves as our PIO, and she is very active in our community special events, such as the Halloween Trunk-or-Treat and Winter-Wonderland.  She continually demonstrates professionalism and dedication to the highest standards of our organization. She encompasses many strengths, including her loyalty and dedication, not only to the mission of the Fire Department and the City, but her relationship with others throughout the community. It is with great pleasure we present the Mike Shaw Pride of La Verne Award to Deputy Fire Marshal Jessica Estrella.   #lvfd #lavernefire #mikeshawaward ... See MoreSee Less
