Two new members of the South Pasadena Fire Department were welcomed to the city during Wednesday’s City Council meeting.
Sworn-in as firefighers/paramedics were Adam Tregenza and Corbin Cutshaw during a brief ceremony.
Tregenza has a total of 11 years of experience in the fire service, including seven years with Cal Fire San Diego and four with Rincon Fire. Out of those 11 years, South Pasadena Fire Department Chief Paul Riddle pointed out that Tregenza has been a practicing paramedic.
Tregenza was joined by his parents, Steven and Victoria, children, Tori, Adrie and Carly, and wife, Georti, who proudly pinned on her husband’s badge.
Joining Cutshaw during the swearing in was his father, Ross, mother, Sue, and his girlfriend, Stephanie. After graduating from U.C. Davis, Corbin went on to receive his certification from UCLA. He comes to South Pasadena with four years experience, including one with the Heli Tac Crew and two on a forestry engine. After taking the Oath of Allegiance, Cutshaw’s girlfriend pinned on his badge.
“They’re going to be great for our department,” said Riddle following the ceremony. “They’re experienced and really know what they’re doing.”
