Nature of Incident: Memorial for Search & Rescue Team Member Jeff Dye
Location: Calvary Community Church 5495 Via Rocas Westlake Village, Ca.
Date & Time: February 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held next Friday, February 15, 2019 to honor Search and Rescue Team Member Jeff Dye. The ceremony will take place at the Calvary Community Church in Westlake Village at 11:00 am, and is open to the public. Jeff Dye is survived by his wife, Sandra Dye, of Thousand Oaks.  
Dye was killed last Saturday when he was struck by a vehicle while he and his fellow team members had stopped to rescue the driver of another vehicle that had rolled over on the Grapevine near Lake Pyramid. As the team was treating the driver for major injuries, another vehicle traveling northbound lost control and plowed through the scene, killing Dye and injuring several other people, including three other members of Dye’s SAR team and two Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics.
The team had been traveling north toward Mount Pinos to conduct winter training in snow conditions.
