CSLEA President Thanks Yountville Firefighter Security Officers Recognized for Assisting with North Bay Fires

YOUNTVILLE – On February 4, 2017, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona met with three CSLEA members who were recently recognized by administrators at the Veterans home in Yountville for working 24-hour shifts for days on end to keep citizens safe and flames at bay during the October North Bay fires.

“These public safety professionals don’t put on their uniforms and show up for work every day for recognition,” said Barcelona.  “They are first responders who have a passion for the safety of others.  I wanted to personally reach out to Firefighter Security Officers Thomas Becerra and Brian Madsen and acting Captain Megan Patterson to say thank you, not only for their commitment to public safety, but for reaching out to their union to express concerns and to share their public safety experiences with the rest of us.  This is a unique group of public safety professionals protecting the Yountville Veterans home and the surrounding community.”

On November 28, 2107, administrators at the Veterans home in Yountville held a ceremony, publicly recognizing and thanking Becerra, Madsen and Patterson as well as Chief Tony Arcuri and Firefighter Security Officer Lorenzo Serrato.

Presenting the awards were California Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Vito Imbasciani, MD, acting Administrator Ursula Stuter, and Thomas Martin with CalVet PP.
