People gathered in San Luis Obispo Saturday to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving and protecting others in San Luis Obispo County.
Sheriff Ian Parkinson and Board of Supervisors Chairman Adam Hill presided over Saturday's dedication of the "Wall of Honor." It honors the lives of four sheriff's personnel who died in the line of duty as part of Police Officer Memorial Week.
Christopher Meadows was a Cal Poly grad and volunteer EMT. He was killed while responding to a call at the Oceano Dunes two years ago.
"This is a tremendous honor for our family," said Tim Meadows, Chris' Father. "It's an incredibly hard circumstance, but I think Chris would have been pleased to be honored for his service."
Meadows was the first member of the Search and Rescue team to be killed in the line of duty.
