Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District Recognizes Horse Rescuers

Officers and firefighters are honored for their heroic efforts in the May 15 incident

On June 12, the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District Board of Directors along with Fire Chief Michael Mingee recognized those who participated in the rescue of a horse on May 15 who got spooked and swam miles out to sea off the coast of Summerland.

State Parks peace officer Kevin Escalante and Harbor Patrol officer Ryan Kelly were in attendance to receive recognition for their professionalism, along with the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire District firefighters who were on duty that evening.

Firefighter/paramedic Johan Nilsson and firefighter Han Domini, who were also instrumental in the rescue, were not able to be present.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
