Like so many other firefighters, Ted Hall never saw himself as a “hero.” But on August 30, 2009, he made the most heroic sacrifice of all, giving his life trying to save others during the Station Fire. A 27-year LA County Fire Department veteran, Ted found his calling working in the wildland fire camps. He was quick to share his time, experience and unmatched dedication with everyone – his colleagues, his union and, of course, his family. Ted Hall was only 47 years old when he gave his life in the line of duty.
