It was a rare rain filled morning in Westminster, but by shortly after 9:00 the showers had stopped and the sun was shining down on the seventh annual Little Saigon Tet Parade. The parade celebrates the lunar new years and Year of the Pig. The annual event is hosted by the City of Westminster and organized by the Vietnamese American Federation of Southern California.
Sgt. Drinnin, Westminster PD, would like to thank our Westminster RACES and West Orange County CERT volunteers for their hard work and dedication in supporting the Westminster community in the TET parade. Despite the heavy rain at the start of the event it turned out to be a sunny day.
West County CERT Members: Barbara Ames, Herme Asido, and Chi Nguyen who is also the Westminster Chief Radio Officer, paired up with the Westminster RACES volunteers to monitor parade activities. We were able to use the RACES radio in the Urban Area Mobile Command Post (below) which was monitored by Assistant Chief Radio Officer, Adam Valek. Thanks to everyone for a great job!
