SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Former Fire Captain Charlie Johnson has received an honor from the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors for his efforts while he was on duty, and now in retirement, to help inform the public during emergencies.

In his retirement, in recent years, Johnson has worked with a group of information officers to make sure they are united when a major emergency hits.
