Pleasanton church honors first responders

Lighthouse Baptist Church in downtown Pleasanton held its annual First Responder Sunday on Aug. 18, a ceremony that included High Honor Awards presented to local firefighter-paramedic Gustavo Trejo for distinguishing himself during a medical emergency response nearly a year ago and to longtime California Highway Patrol senior volunteer Peter Lee.

In all, 18 first-responders attended the recognition event, representing CHP, Pleasanton and Dublin police, Alameda County Sheriff's Office and Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department.

Pastor Bill Bryson told the congregation and the first responders present that "one of the blessings of living in America is that we have men and women like these in position we can go to, we can trust, and we can depend upon."
