What do you do in your off time?
Where do you volunteer your time?
Lisa Dutton, an 8 year veteran as a Sheriff Volunteer,
has put in over 2,500 Volunteer hours with the
Los Angeles Sheriff Department (L.A.S.D.).
Lisa was selected out of 68 volunteers to be the
“Sheriff Volunteer of the Year”.
Lisa volunteers out of the Crescenta Valley Station for the L.A.S.D.
and has been working diligently with Captain Bill Song, Sargent Brink and
Deputy Valdivia to help facilitate all the Community Relations Programs.
Lisa works and helps plan and organize such events as
the Sheriffs Annual Food and Toy Drive as well as National Night Out,
Rummage Sale and Sheriffs Open House events.
Lisa also heads up the L.A.S.D. La Crescenta C.E.R.T.
(Community Emergency Response Team) Program. Crescenta
Valley C.E.R.T. was started by Lisa and Paul Dutton 8 years ago.
They have put on 18 trainings together, 5 Major Drills and
have trained over 400 people in the Crescenta Valley.
Lisa not only is a F.E.M.A. and L.A.S.D. Certified Trainer
for C.E.R.T., but also is a Certified Program Manager.
Lisa also is an Emergency Medical Responder (E.M.R.) with the Red Cross.
In her spare time, Lisa is also a Certified Red Cross First Aid Trainer
(whew, were does she find the energy?!).
Isn’t it obvious why they picked Lisa to be the Volunteer of the Year?!
