Members of the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Urban Search & Rescue Unit did double duty today, practicing their rock climbing skills while scrubbing off graffiti at the top of The Eagle Rock. Today’s clean up was scheduled after The Eastsider reported late last month that the tagging at the top of the neighborhood landmark was too high and dangerous for city crews to remove. But, after being contacted by Councilman Jose Huizar’ office, the LAFD Search & Rescue team agreed to take on the clean up task. A faint outline of the graffiti remained visible on The Eagle Rock after this morning’s clean up but was far less noticeable. Makes you wonder how that urban tagging crew managed the feat in the first place.
