Corning, Calif. - The best of Tehama County's Firefighters and Crimefighters were honored at a dinner in Corning Saturday, February 23rd, 2019.

The Corning Exchange Club hosted about 150 people for their annual Law Enforcement and Fire Personnel Recognition Awards.
Officers and firefighters from 13 different agencies were recognized for outstanding service.

Among them, Cal Fire Firefighter Ryan Smith, who led a team of firefighters that narrowly escaped with their lives after being trapped by flames of the fast moving Carr fire.

Tehama County Sheriff's Deputy Ryan Frank was also recognized.  He was shot in an exchange of gunfire with a suspect in Los Molinos in July.

The Tehama County Fire Department honored the Rowen family for their many family members who are volunteer firefighters. Between them, they have volunteered the equivalent of 136 years.

Action News Now Noon News Anchor Linda Watkins-Bennett was emcee for the event, which is a fundraiser for local scholarships and community service projects.
