The East Valley team along with members of Fillmore and Upper Ojai teams assisted the Santa Barbara Search and Rescue team to provide medical rescue response for the multi-day Halloween street party in Isla Vista near the University of Santa Barbara. Normally there is a very large number of people attending with multiple a medical incidents.

The Friday operation on Halloween started out with fairly large crowds but very heavy rains came through which dampened the event with all participants going elsewhere. Saturday's event had very few attendees that the team was released early.
